  • (2017-07-01) ATLGASTATESPORTSFANx: Don't judge me. It has a open in new tab and its okay to me. Besides, I'm tired of searching in Wikipedia's whole website all along.
  • (2017-03-20) Vitaly Gray: Great idea. But. XMLHttpRequest cannot load https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'chrome-extension://dhgpkiiipkgmckicafkhcihkcldbdeej' is therefore not allowed access.
  • (2016-12-02) Wen Sun: 应该是不更新了,都不能用了。

  • (2016-02-08) Tonk Tunk: Not working
  • (2016-02-07) Dmitry Sadovnikov: do not work
  • (2016-01-20) Does not work and has been unfortunately abandoned. Sad.
  • (2015-11-24) Guillaume ALIROL: Ne fonctionne pas.
  • (2015-09-03) Zack Abrams: Will not work
  • (2015-08-29) Gabby: The developer website shows the last blog post was in early January of this year - we've been abandoned, folks. It was a real nice thought, my auto-didactic nature makes a few hours on Wikipedia with Chrome the complete nightmare (memory usage skyrockets). I'm sad to say it doesn't seem like there's another comparable option.
  • (2015-07-20) Mark McKean: Extension has been broken since June (likely by Wikipedia's new mandatory https policy). This has been reported by many users on the support tab here, but the developer has provided zero response. Consider it abandoned until the developer demonstrates otherwise.
  • (2015-07-01) Hunter Evans: won't produce a result after searching.
  • (2015-04-25) Brian Ndlovu: THE BEST IN ITS CLASS
  • (2015-04-15) E. Groeg: Your searches don't show up unless if you spell them PERFECTLY CORRECT. -_-
  • (2015-03-29) prasad dasika: Very helpful, Thanks

  • (2016-05-16, v:2.0) Dmitrii Nuzhin: Business proposal
    Hello! I'm interested in your chrome extension . I want to buy it with the transfer of your google account or without it which means the transfer of the chrome extension in my account. I propose the price 4 000 $. We can bargain if your users are active. e-mail:[email protected] Dmitrii
