  • I don't know much about the technical pros or cons of this extension but the look and feel are great. Really well done, also the pop-up windows which show a summery info of highlighted words found in the text makes researching so much more enjoyable.
  • Loving the re-designed Wikipedia; the old design just looks outdated and cluttered.
    The table of contents looks amazing too, and it's very handy to be able to access it from anywhere in the page.
    Perhaps there can be some customizations for the link preview, such as box and thumbnail size or transparency.
    Other than that, many thanks for finally get rid of the "Install Wikiwand" button.
  • 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.
