Wikipedia is one of the wonders of the Internet, as it allows us to access a large amount of current information and completely free of charge. One of the few drawbacks it has is that its interface has hardly changed over the years, and it looks quite dated. Wikiwand is a modern reader that comes to solve this.
Wikiwand revolutionizes Wikipedia
Wikiwand is a Wikipedia reader that comes in the form of an extension for the Firefox and Chrome browsers. Wikiwand has been created by and for Wikipedia fans. This open source encyclopedia has more than 35 million articles related to a myriad of topics, all of them translated into approximately 288 languages.
A great cover letter for a product that lacks another essential aspect, its physical appearance. Wikipedia has existed for 17 years and its aesthetic has barely changed in all these years . The problem is not only aesthetic, as it is not able to take advantage of all the capabilities of the advanced smartphones that we use today.
Wikiwand transforms the way Wikipedia works. This extension keeps all the existing information in the encyclopedia, but shows it to you in a much more attractive , modern way and above all better adapted to current technologies. All Wikipedia articles are freely licensed, so this extension will have no problems with any of them.
