  • (2017-09-25) Christopher Lovejoy: Wiki[pedia] extensions are generally just links or simple address bar search extensions. I wanted a small window that opened links internally. This is just how I want to look things up: a quick search and browse, and I can easily open articles in dedicated tabs if I choose.
  • (2016-09-08) John S Wolter: Only one review, I'm the 23nd user. Replaces a lookup extension with like behavior that is broken & not being supported. YAWE provides Wikipedia search, an article viewing window, & open an article in a tab features. My 1st test worked as described. A search for "Powershell" (recently made Open Source by Microsoft, no kidding) found that article & displayed the top of the article quickly. The only issue was the need to make the lead picture & info box into drop-down segments. Then, the 1st paragraph of text would be visible. You can still read that lead text now, if you scroll-down a short distance. It's a great start, hope to see more features. Wikipedia users tend to be good long-term customers. Will there be a Pro-version?
