- por UPukaJRm, el hace 8 mesesSe valoró con 1 de 5After loading Wikiwand, I tried a Wikipedia page to test it and nothing appeared. I opened Ublock Origin and found that Wikiwand was try to contact many tracker spying websites and blocking these call homes stops the Wikipedia page from loading with Wikiwand installed. While I want Wikiwand to be able to create this add on, stealth spying is no acceptable. Tell users or do not spy on them!
- por informationsuperriver, el hace un añoSe valoró con 1 de 5If you put wikiwand under the markup's blacklight, you'll find 24 ad trackers (7x times the normal) and 38 third-party-cookies. Not surprising, but also not worth it. Spy on someone else.
- por rhin, el hace un añoSe valoró con 1 de 5This addon doesn't enhance wikipedia by injecting CSS, it just takes you to another site. The description is very deceptive as most users won't notice that.
- por Usuario de Firefox 14067906, el hace 2 añosSe valoró con 1 de 5All they do is taking Wikipedia's hard work and making money out of it (which Wikipedia has always refused). Everyone's free to make money if done legally but that's a rude way of doing it (since Wikipedia lives from donations). My old laptop can't run it since Wikiwand is so modern. My last concern is that when the addon has been installed, even if you go to Wikipedia you'll be redirected
Btw, the sidebar doesnt work properly on pages with a lot of headers https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Collatz_conjecture
- por element, el hace 2 añosSe valoró con 1 de 5I install wikiwand and it looks great but it keeps bugging me to install wikiwand... what? The only reason I'm seeing the message is because I have wikiwand installed. What the hell is this? Stop the popups, jesus! I mean, how utterly stupid is this: "Enjoying Wikiwand? Get Wikiwand!" ... I mean... really?! is this a joke? I already have the extension!!! uninstalling. Completely ridiculous. The fact that this addon has such good reviews does nothing but tell me how utterly brain dead the vast majority of people are. That, or every single positive review on this addon is fake.
- por Usuario de Firefox 14734853, el hace 3 añosSe valoró con 1 de 5Devs know about the issues and claim they have been fixed but they are still major issues.
There are random ads and loads of ads that are for the extension. Makes no sense and diminishes the UX almost entirely.
The layout doesn't improve anything at all, hero images look ok but the menus are horrible.
This addon is garbage.
- por Usuario de Firefox 14233115, el hace 3 añosSe valoró con 1 de 5Oversimplies and has ads for the extension itself, which doesn't make sense. It actually says,
Give good old Wikipedia a great new look:
with "Get Wikiwand" as a clickable button to this extension page, which conveniently guided me to the review section so as to leave a poor review. Great work, dev, advertise to use the extension within the extension.
The whole extension removes utility from Wiki while replacing it with ads for itself. Especially if you are a wiki contributor, stay away from this toxic extension and don't be dazzled by it's semi-modern and over-simplified UI
