Make Wikipedia Look Great with Wikiwand!

Wikiwand is a chrome extension to make Wikipedia look great.

What a page looks like when loaded
We all use Wikipedia (even if we're not meant to). It's a great source for researching for homework, essays or just for looking up things that interest you.

I was always slightly off-put when using Wikipedia due to its ugly looks. Some may find it fine, but I found it off-putting. Wikiwand changed that. It still allows you to access Wikipedia's features, but it makes it look great. There is an easy to use table at the side, and the article is in the centre. You can still access links on the page, and access the Wikipedia tools. You also get the option to change it back to the normal Wikipedia view, and this can be done by clicking on the Wikipedia logo that can be seen on the bottom right.

All in all, Wikiwand is a great way to make Wikipedia look great, whilst retaining its functionality. I would recommend you try it out.

  1. i prefer using wikipedia without wikiwand. i find that with wikiwand it is too hard to access the basic functions of wikipedia, such as editing the article or downloading it as a pdf.

    1. I usually just switch Wikiwand off when I want to edit.
