  • Got addicted. cannot use old wikipedia UI anymore
  • Wikiwand was the greatest Wikipedia add-on ever. Now they totally screwed it up with the most intrusive, useless ads I've seen in a long time. If only they were even remotely related to the content at hand, but no, they're totally random and add no value at all. Also, they're seemingly immune to ad blockers, because as soon as you pick up the elements to block, the whole page UI gets messed up. Disgusting.
    Guys, you need revenue? There are better ways, I'm sure.
    Hi, thanks for the review. We appreciate your comment and so in the recent releases we added the ability to check if the user has an extension or not and so now if you have Firefox extension installed you will see no more ads. Regards
  • Recently wikiland started showing intrusive ads. I wouldn't have minded an unintrusive ad but this is too much

  • AMAZING!
  • Simply beautiful.
  • I used to like you, Wikiwand. You could have been great. You could have been better than Wikipedia.

    But no.

    Now you show ads embedded straight in the source code so you bypass adblockers. As an added bonus, they break the page now. Hooray, killing two birds with one stone! Don't even bother blocking them with element hider because they're a hydra; cut off one head it grows another.

    Did you piss off your investors? Revenue running on fumes? I'm sorry but you guys have lost my respect for selling out and aggressively pushing ads onto the end user. It's funny because Wikipedia stood against ads and you people decide to go against that, full steam ahead. I doubt that 30% goes to Wikipedia.

    Straight to the trash it goes, like it belonged in the first place. It was too good to be true.

    If the intrusivity was an honest mistake then I will eat my words. Until then, this review stays.

  • Ads take up 1/3 of the page. Going back to the basics.
  • Ads?? Are you joking? Uninstalled. A pity, because the extension was pretty, but ads are an absolute no-go.
  • Uninstalled the moment they put ads on Wikipedia. Sleazy and only 30% of their revenue goes to wikipedia. Completely shameless and I will never use your product again.
  • This addon was pretty cool, but trying to make money off of Wikipedia articles with ads is sleazy. Uninstalled.
  • Displaying ads over a Wikipedia article is entirely unnacceptable
  • Ads on top of the page is too much. It was once my favourite extension, just sad to see it sell itself to ruin user experience.
  • Wikiwand used to be great, but now adds a line of shitty advertisement on top of wikipedia. Sad to see one my favorite wiki improvements turn to this :(
  • Википедию стало приятнее читать
  • I can't go back to the old Wikipedia ever again. This extension breathes new life into an old standard, making it both gorgeous and far more user friendly. Seriously, try it.
