  • (2021-10-08) PogPig: Excellent extension! I really, really appreciate the first good-looking Wikipedia dark mode this extension has. I would not object to recommend this to people I know. However one small suggestion I have is for when dark mode is toggled, the Wikiwand menu at the top of the page also turns black. Otherwise, this is a great extension.
  • (2021-10-06) Alejandro: Must have
  • (2021-08-29) Introvernauta: God bless you!
  • (2021-08-25) Denis Lorenc: This really should become the new standard for wikipedia. It's about time for wikipedia to go "next-gen"
  • (2021-08-20) viejory lee: That's so great ! If there could add a button to ajust the line-height,the Experience will be better.
  • (2021-08-15) Tommy Thurston: Just amazing.
  • (2021-08-15) Johnny Rico: Super extension globalement, mais j'ai un soucis pour changer la langue d'un article en anglais, j'ai le message "No such article in english" sur des pages qui ont bien une version anglaise (vérifié en changeant "fr" en "en" dans l'url). Merci !
  • (2021-07-17) Rodrigo Sambade Saá: Excelente extensión que mejora mucho el aspecto de Wikipedia.
  • (2021-07-15) Lyo de Valois: Sem palavras, transformou algo maçante em Fantástico! Indispensável para quem usa a Wikipédia.
  • (2021-07-05) Manisha Pillai: Loving it.
  • (2021-06-16) Kostas Margiavičius: Some time ago, the sorting function on tables has stopped working.
  • (2021-06-04) B. Butler: Best extension I have, I use it almost everyday.
  • (2021-06-04) Yorkyboy: GENIAL, mais IL N'Y A PAS DE VERSION FRANCAISE ?
  • (2021-05-25) Great tool to read wiki articles easily!
  • (2021-05-24) Alan Welsh: The search feature is a bit awkward. After typing some letters a list of results will appear, but when I use the keyboard's arrow keys to move the selected highlighted area down to my target of inquiry and press ENTER, the page that shows up is never correct. I must always use the mouse, rather than the keyboard, to select my desired search result.
  • (2021-05-19) Eduardo Kusznieryk: no sabia que lo necesitaba, hasta ahora. Gracias.
  • (2021-05-19) Jorge CoIindres: It's very cool
  • (2021-05-09) Ahmad Wahyudi: Bring Awesome UX.
  • (2021-04-14) 入江太一: 目次がサイドメニュー化される点、多言語のWikipediaに切り替えて同じ項目(ことば)を表示することができる点が便利。 ja.wikipedia.orgのホーム自体はそのまま。記事ページを表示しようとすると、wikiwand.com/ja/の該当ページに飛ばされる。つまりWikipediaの見た目を変えてくれているのではなく、Wikipediaのクローンサイトを見やすく作ってくれているというもののようです。項目の編集も可能で、編集画面自体はja.wikipedia.orgのもの。編集してもwikiwandにもすぐ反映されるかどうかは不明。おそらくタイムラグはあると思う。 この拡張機能はインストール時に「アクセスしたウェブサイト上にある自分の全データの読み取りと変更」という強い権限を求めてきます。 セキュリティが気になる人は、Wikipediaを開いた状態で、拡張機能のアイコンを右クリックしてメニューを開き、[サイトデータの読み取りと変更を行います]をクリック、[ja.wikipedia.org]を選択しておくと、wikipedia以外に開いたサイトをwikiwand側に読み取られずに済みます。
  • (2021-04-08) Sean-Lee: I love the presentation. I am so used to it that going back to the original wiki design is horrifying BUT please add the ability to save pages or an extra extension that manages saved articles. That would be worth paying for. Thank you!!
  • (2021-04-04) Issam Mohamed Hammadi: Very Helpful Extension!
  • (2021-03-15) Paul S: I'm not a fan of the hovering tool tips that pop up for hyperlinks. I accidentally hover over them and get distracted while I'm reading. My biggest wish is for an extension that provides a way to fit articles into a thinner column in the middle of the page, much like the way Medium's articles are formatted. Thanks to the author for making Wikipeda easier to use for so many people.
  • (2021-02-22) Weekend Wang: Good extension, while a bug is present: Wikipedia "Category" pages doesn't show. eg. https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Category:Application_layer_protocols vs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Application_layer_protocols?oldformat=true The wikiwand version is empty.
  • (2021-02-12) nocturnal digitalist: Wikiwand: Wikipedia Modernized solves all the issues that Wikipedia has. But one should as a user check and know why it releases so many ads and trackers esp., of facebook. WHY? I DONT USE FACEBOOK NOR ANY OF ITS SERVICES AND APPS. WHY? What Wikipedia should do, Wikiwand does. Like dark mode, limited two font change, text size change, text alignment, chang between rich and minimal but all that changing and settings opening takes ages. Also Wikiwand opens very slowly in comparison to wikipedia. I hope wikiwand improves on that. I would love to see their mobile app. Also add an option to save web page of wikiwand as html or pdf. For someone still in doubt, can see this screenshot (https://postimg.cc/DJfxTkLq) and and use ublock origin because that is the one that tells so. Also adguard. I will be disabling Wikiwand until Wikiwand team here doesnt explain this. BECAUSE I DONT WANT THIS DATA SELLING TO FB AND OTHER THEY DO. I WILL KEEP MY RATING TO 1 STAR UNTIL THEN.

  • (2021-02-02) Constant1neTheGreat: Прекрасное расширение
  • (2021-01-17) Xx - Wiktoria - xX: Just added and the layout, looks very cool and it make Wikipedia much easier to use. The feature I like the most is being able to click on titles, on the side as they take you immediately to the part that you are looking for. :)
  • (2020-12-18) 筱璐: 怎么用啊 我安装了插件但是不会用
  • (2020-11-28) Aris Tsatsaronis: Been using this for years, I can never go back to the old Wikipedia experience. I'm glad I found it, it's pretty awesome and helpful!
  • (2020-11-27) Олександр Омельченко: Amazing. Thank you so much!
  • (2020-11-26) Aidar Amrekulov: The primary problem with wikipedia is the enormous width of the lines. This extension solves it only partially. Numerous studies suggest that the optimal line length is around 50-60 characters (including spaces), which is definitely not the case for this extension. It is just strange when an app tries to solve something and then doesn't research how to do it.
  • (2020-11-18) Sunaina Barua_106: I love this new look. Currently, I haven't been experiencing any problems with wikiwand extension (since my laptop is more than 10 years old and usually hangs by adding new stuff). simply, it's awesome! Also, the layout is very modern and useful (for the kinda blackish theme)
  • (2020-11-11) gicabrawl brawl: Is like an wikipedia 2
  • (2020-11-06) Jonas Biemond: I really love it, sooo mouth better than the ugly Wikipedia
  • (2020-10-30) Andy Xiong: 最近用不了了不知道原因
  • (2020-10-29) Peter Bacon: Will there ever be an option to enable multiple columns for text content?
  • (2020-10-28) Ruben H.: Rating it only.
  • (2020-10-12) Hamza 2021: Working good. Sometime seems little annoying (not working) but at least a good step.
  • (2020-10-01) Martin: WHY AM I FINDING THIS ONLY NOW?!?! 10/10 SO many websites could benefit from modernisation like this. E.g. YouTube & Google.
  • (2020-09-30) Luis Santos: Simplesmente indispensável para quem usa a Wikipedia.
  • (2020-09-26) Cooper Goodsir: It completely changes the layout of wikipedia and it makes it feel what the website should look like in its best version!
  • (2020-09-23) Zach: The pages on Wikiwand are simply phenomenal. Look at one and you'll never go back.
  • (2020-08-30) Roman Waldecker: [!] Dangerous app. Way too strong permissions compared to what they need (just an auto-redirect for wikipedia.org links would be enough). Has high abuse potential: Development went dead in 2018 (no more response to user suggestions for years, Spam bots took over their platform) + founding CEO left in Jan 2019.
  • (2020-08-22) Mlok Karel: Tohle jsem měl najít dřív!
  • (2020-07-30) Xavier Guixé Segura: Interfície molt agradable.
  • (2020-07-16) 习近平: 尼玛 害我打不开WIKI 找了半天原因
  • (2020-07-14) Muhammad Ahmad Khalid: This is the best informative extension I have seen this far. The Ctrl + Click(left) option is the best thing that I have loved.
  • (2020-06-26) Portia: 可以切换简中了诶,很好!!界面很舒适!
  • (2020-02-25) Agnes: Really enjoy this extension, but it couldn't load recently.

  • (2014-03-11, v:1.23.21) Near Privman: Better support for browsing the original Wikipedia
    Currently you have a 'Read on Wikipedia' option in your menu, which I sometimes use when I want the familiar interface (as a new user who doesn't yet have full confidence in your app I often want that). It's useful, but after I use it to switch to the original interface, every navigation within Wikipedia takes me back to Better Wikipedia. It would be nice if the setting was a little more sticky, e.g. internal links within Wikipedia wouldn't redirect to Better Wikipedia, or you allow switching for the entire session, etc. The way it currently works made me disable your extension entirely before I really gave it a chance.
  • (2014-01-25, v:1.23.21) 3rd party tracking cookie subverts security and privacy
    I found content from a http://resources.crossrider.com/apps/30846/resources/meta/0 being loaded/stored across all domains, which results in a mixed content warning on any SSL session. I have identified your extension as the source of this untrusted/insecure content. I suspect it is intended for some form of usage tracking/analytics, but I did not opt-in to any data collection based on using this extension. Furthermore, since the mixed-content mode subverts the security and privacy of SSL connections, I must remove this extension until it can behave properly.
