Wikiwand Website & Extensions

  1. Quick definitions are broken in Chrome 73

    In Chrome 73, a new security feature called Cross-Origin Read Blocking (https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629709824032768) prevents Wikiwands popup definitions from working. When you attempt to do a popup, the spinner stays forever, and in the Chrome Console log, you can see the following error message:

    "Cross-Origin Read Blocking (CORB) blocked cross-origin response "https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?..." with MIME type application/json. See https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629709824032768 for more details."

    Relatedly: when the pop-up fails, the spinner stays forever. The popup should detect failure and remove the spinner when this happens, and ideally show a pop-up error with what happened.

  5. The latest version constantly logs output in to the chrome developer console

    The latest version constantly logs output in to the chrome developer console. It should never print anything in to the chrome console unless explicitly in development mode. For web developers it's just filling up the console with messages on every single site. This needs to be turned off now.

  6. Make firefox extensions a 'WebExtension'

    On November 14th Firefox 57 will be released. Starting at Firefox 57 all Firefox extensions that aren't so called WebExtensions will not function anymore. Since WikiWand is incredibly amazing, it would be great if it continues to function on Firefox after Nov. 14th.
    Thanks in advance lovely humans.

  7. Make Firefox addon Electrolysis (E10s) compatible

    Electrolysis is an upcoming multi-process feature of Firefox that is going soon to be standard: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis

    Currently Wikiwand addon is marked by "Add-on compatibility Reporter" as "multiprocess incompatible" (see also list at https://arewee10syet.com/). Please imrove it soon to support this feature because single incompatible addon turn E10s off and E10s gives a great boost performance on machines with enough RAM because of better parallelism, less locks.

    We’ve fixed this error, sorry guys.
    It was caused due to an OpenSSL configuration problem while communicating with the Wikipedia servers. Should be working fine now, sorry again.

  11. When on Dark Theme, invert the colour of math text.

    As it is, we currently have black text on a dark background, which makes it almost impossible to see equations or variables, and which makes it necessary to switch to the light theme.

  12. Remove "content script start" from console log on every page

    I'm working as a web-developer, and this message hurts my work experience, because it's always distracts from actual console messages.

  13. Cleanup console debug

    As a developer, getting the console clogged, is somewhat annoying:

    do not show on websites
    2cards-click.js:32 detected link
    2cards-click.js:44 do not show on websites
    cards-click.js:32 detected link
    cards-click.js:44 do not show on websites
    cards-click.js:32 detected link
    3cards-click.js:44 do not show on websites
    cards-click.js:32 detected link

    Those prints originated from our Chrome Extension, sorry about that.
    We have removed those prints and published a new version of our Chrome Extension.
    Chrome updates extensions automatically, so those prints should be gone within the next few hours – no action is required on your side.

  14. Found a broken link

    I keep getting sent to DeepMind's page if I visit this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AlphaGo#Hardware

    Bookmarking is now available in Wikiwand!
    1. To add the current page, click the “Bookmark” icon in the toolbar.
    2. To add a snippet of text to bookmarks, select some text and click the “Bookmark” icon that pops up on the left.
    3. You can now also hover over any link, and click “Add to bookmark” in the hovercard.

  18. Get rid of comments (facebook or otherwise).

    Comments are a totally unnecessary bloat feature. It will destroy the UX as it adds nothing to the experience one looks for when visiting wikipedia. What people think about wikipedia articles is irrelevant. If there is a factual inaccuracy they can update the article otherwise what else is there to say?

  19. Stop popping up an ad encouraging me to install the Wikiwand extension when I already have it installed.

    I have been experiencing this with with Firefox for several weeks now. All pop-ups annoy me, since I must take to the trouble to dispose of them; but this one is especially annoying because it is arising on Wikiwand pages which I am getting because the extension is already installed! I have version 3.1.1.

  20. add disambigution feature for German, too

    The disambigution feature does not work for other languages, at least not for German: http://www.wikiwand.com/de/Schweizer i.e. I CANNOT reach the disambigution page without manually editing the url. For me, this is a dealbreaker at the moment!

    (Also, I think it should be more prominent, but that's a design question)
