  • (2020-10-12) jemmy 2020: Working good. Sometime seems little annoying (not working) but at least a good step.
  • (2020-10-01) Kiiros: 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.

  • (2020-07-14) 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.

  • (2020-02-04) Shubham Gupta: Awesome extension! Gives the modern UI finish to the most used website by students.
  • (2020-01-29) Gabriel Quinche: el volver wikipedia un sitio con advertisment me parece algo perverso, siendo que una extensión a diferencia de una wiki debe de tener un costo de mantenimiento MUCHO más bajo
  • (2020-01-23) Fibert Loyee: 这个插件可能是想要使用 现代化 维基百科 页面的最佳选择了。传统的默认维基百科界面在扁平、质感化的 0202 年已然不能称为界面优美了。还好现在有了 Wikiwand 的帮助,让我无缝体验到了维基百科上的现代化设计。
  • (2020-01-11) Batu Yiğit ERTEN: Good but images can't be opened.
  • (2020-01-09) Serge Tanguay: Excellent ! Je n’avais jamais entendu parler de Wikiwand. Wikipedia devrait réellement s’en inspirer pour moderniser son interface. La présentation des articles est beaucoup plus aérée, beaucoup plus nette. Et l'extension fait son travail à la perfection. Excellent! I've never heard of Wikiwand before. Wikipedia should really take inspiration from it to modernize its interface. The presentation of articles is much more airy, much cleaner. And the extension does its job perfectly.
  • (2020-01-05) Nick Han: 很棒,只可惜现在无法访问了
  • (2019-12-30) Mohit Ravani: Given wiki's ad-free nature, I don't see how it's OK for the extension to start throwing ads onto the page.
  • (2019-12-25) Jérémie Lumbroso: What started as a thoughtful restyling of Wikipedia, turned out to be a nefarious plot to embed ads. Wikipedia has fought tooth and nail to make sure it never has to show ads, certainly not for this joker to be doing 1/100000th of the work and collecting financial rewards. AVOID!
  • (2019-12-12) Siyu Shen: It looks good at the beginning, but soon I found more and more ads in the page. The ad is not only floating in the right side, but also appear between paragraphs. Every few paragraph there will be an ad. Well, if it's just this, I will be able to understand, however, the ads are always flashing, which makes me unable to focus on the contents. I think these flashing ads are totally unacceptable and contradicts with the purpose of making the reading more comfortable and immersive.
  • (2019-12-06) Jason Zhou: Has someone run into the issue of the preferred languages cannot be saved? Every time I refreshed the page, my preferred language turned into English and French, regardless of how I set them before.
  • (2019-11-17) tj y: There is always a useless log 'detect link' in the console. Many other extension also use ctrl as a trigger key, so it would be better to add a shortcut to trigger the extension.
  • (2019-11-16) _Akin: If wikipedia is blocked in your country, this extension is your go-to.

Latest issues

  • (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.
