  • Great add-on! Loving the re-designed Wikipedia; the old design looks outdated and cluttered.
    The table of contents looks beautiful and can be accessed from anywhere within the page, although it is not perfect, since sometimes there are a few subheadings are missing.
    For the link pop-up, I wish there are options included for customizing it to your preference, such as being able to change the box size, thumbnail size, transparency, etc. The pop-out link icon also seems unnecessarily large and takes up space; it should be the same size as the text.
    The search function is a handy little tool, though I still prefer searching on Google since I get more than just Wikipedia results.
    One thing that I find annoying is that the "Install Wikiwand" text and wand icon (including the pop-up on hover) has been there for some time now, and many users have complained about this to which Wikiwand replied stating that this is a bug. It has been more than 3 years since the submission on UserVoice, and I am still experiencing this issue. Other than this, it looks like the advertisements that people have been complaining about are no where to be seen (with or without the add-on installed) from what I've seen so far, which is great.
  • Its just so fresh!
  • Fairly good!
  • Why do you need the new permission? I can't find any comments from you where this change is adressed. Please communicate with us.

    edit: Thank you for the quick response! We can't be cautious enough these days with Add-ons being taken over for malicous causes.
    This webNavigation permission is needed for us in order to be able to set cookie for the wikiwand.com domain when your page is loaded. We need this cookie to let our backend know if the corresponding user has the wikiwand extension or not. Later we will sync functionality of the Firefox extension with the Chrome extension and, for instance, Firefox user will have an ability to Ctrl+Click on terms and give immediate Wikiwand pop-up with term definition. To implement such a thing we need to have an ability to inject our client JS scripts into the pages. Please refer our Chrome web store where you will find more details about further functionality
  • Latest version is suspicious. It says only "small fixes", but it asks for additional permissions - access browser activity! Besides that nice add-on.
