- Rated 5 out of 5Got addicted. cannot use old wikipedia UI anymore
- Rated 1 out of 5Wikiwand 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
- Rated 1 out of 5Recently wikiland started showing intrusive ads. I wouldn't have minded an unintrusive ad but this is too muchHi, 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.

- Rated 5 out of 5AMAZING!
- Rated 5 out of 5Simply beautiful.
- Rated 1 out of 5I used to like you, Wikiwand. You could have been great. You could have been better than Wikipedia.
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.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.

- Rated 1 out of 5Ads take up 1/3 of the page. Going back to the basics.
- Rated 1 out of 5Ads?? Are you joking? Uninstalled. A pity, because the extension was pretty, but ads are an absolute no-go.
- Rated 1 out of 5Uninstalled 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.
- Rated 1 out of 5This addon was pretty cool, but trying to make money off of Wikipedia articles with ads is sleazy. Uninstalled.
- Rated 1 out of 5Displaying ads over a Wikipedia article is entirely unnacceptable
- Rated 1 out of 5Ads 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.
- Rated 1 out of 5Wikiwand 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 :(
- Rated 5 out of 5Википедию стало приятнее читать
- Rated 5 out of 5I 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.
- Rated 5 out of 5Beautifully and neatly transforms Wikipedia articles on-the-fly from its legacy appearance and handling into 21st century look-and-feel, including some customizable visual settings (like serif and sans letterforms and a dark theme!) and great easy-access features like:
- Access less often used Wikipedia tools, such as editing, history and discussion pages, in the menu bar (the legacy Wikipedia site is opened in a separate tab).
- Easily switch the displayed language of an article if it is available in any of your preferred languages.
- Tap CTRL twice to toggle the search field for additional Wikipedia material.
- Mouse-over a link to another article to not only display a pop-up window intro of the article, but also to open the article in another tab (without having to hold down a key).
