  1. Put most commonly used languages on top

    It looks like it's always the same languages on top, and then you can click 'more languages' to choose between all languages.
    But most users have a specific subset of languages which they care about (common case being their mother tongue + english).

  2. Hide or minimze the search bar - show it on hover

    I think that the search bar is too big and takes too much place, also it really doesn't look nice IMO, maybe something more sober, and less invasive would be better. Thx,

    We removed the search bar from the toolbar, now there’s a small search button instead.
    Also, we have improved the search accuracy and display, give it a try!

  3. Fix iOS Safari Crashes

    I find WikiWand slow and crashy on mobile Safari. When I load a moderately long article, like Bill Gates, it is slow loading, and about 50% of the time it crashes the page/browser (which I see rarely happen on other sites). On my Android Nexus 7 tablet, Wiki Wand works much better. My Device: iPhone 4S; iOS 8.

  6. Disable social features

    The new social, 'share' and 'news' features distract from the articles - if I was to share something on Twitter, FB or otherwise, I would use other means.

    We have recently disabled the news feature in article pages.

    We still keep the “share” button for articles, though, since many users use it and it’s widely common in any modern app.

  7. Disable Cover Image

    The large cover image on some articles makes scrolling really laggy when compared to articles that don't have a cover image. I think this is due to the hardware-acceleration of scrolling in OS X, but it'd be great if we could disable cover images on all articles (this'd also help load times drastically).

    I tried blocking it using a custom adblock filter but the cover_image div has the CSS to offset the content below it, so if you block the image it cuts off the title and first paragraph of the article.

    Other than that WikiWand is fab!

  10. Serve pages over HTTPS

    Please add an option or permanently alter the site/extension so that pages are served securely over HTTPS.

    You should consider making it harder for government or private entities to intercept, track and profile the browsing history of people trying to educate themselves, which can be a major concern for visitors from some less democratic countries.

    Thank you.

    HTTPS is now enabled in Wikiwand – you can browser to any article using HTTPS!
    Chrome Extension users are automatically redirected to read the article using HTTPS when arriving from an HTTPS website (such as Google Search).

  12. Colour-coded graph legend

    With coloured maps and graphs, Wikipedia has a legend that shows how each colour corresponds to a certain data point or value. Wikiwand is missing the colours associated with the values. For example, take a look at the map legend on the Microeconomics page.

  13. Choosing "Cover photo" for the article.

    For now, there is only an option to "report" the cover photo (the big one in the header) as unsuitable or disturbing. Perhaps, there should be an option to choose the cover photo from those related to the article by means of voting, or otherwise.

  16. Open source

    I understand you might want to monetize WikiWand later on, but the source being available shouldn't hurt your ability to do so, and in fact using a popular code hosting provider such as github will likely even accelerate its improvement :)

  17. Talk & History Pages display option

    Although not very popular, I'm someone who actually uses the Talk Pages to gain more information on an article, which btw is one of the best hidden secrets on the web. Also, I sometimes use the History page for further context. I'd like to see an option to display links to both the Talk & History pages, instead of having to revert to the old wiki style in order to access them.

  18. I want a button for printing a wiki-article

    What happened to the button to print an article? I saw it, but now its gone. The button to make a PDF-file vanished too.

  19. Ctrl+clicking a link in Firefox opens in current tab as well

    Clicking on a result on google opens two tabs with the same wikiwand content (Firefox 31-Windows 7)
