Utilities to improve the user experience of Wikipedia.org for avid users.

Description from store Wikipedia Plus supplements Wikipedia.org's existing web interface with some convenient behaviors I always wanted myself. Unlike other extensions which aggressively modify or interfere with the Wikipedia website look and feel, this extension respects the original Wikipedia design and makes minimal changes. I believe that the most empowering tools are invisible. Features: * show short text snippets for Wikipedia's internal entries when hover * turn section titles into in-page links for easier bookmarking and sharing particular sections * enlarge images when hover * zoom level is adjustable * adjusted enlarged image placement for right-to-left language pages This is an open-source software.

    Make it easy to switch between different languages. An extension for the Opera browser does a superb job: https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/polyglot-wikipedia/?display=en now it's not possible to use the extension in Chrome anymore since it's not in the Chrome webstore, but it might be easy to look at the code and build the same feature into your extension. Basically, the user can select languages in the extension options. For those languages, there appear links to the current article in those languages below the title of the article, and they are also popped up in the language menu on the left, to make it easy to switch between languages. Thanks for considering it!
