This extension allows the user to look up Wikipedia with selected text
Here's a simple hassle free extension to quickly search Wikipedia that won't waste your time. Simply select text and click on the extension to pull up quick Wikipedia results!
Why use this extension? We've all been there, we start with one page and end up one another completely random page hours later! It's definitely happened to me.
This extension gives you just the result you need with limited mobility inside Wikipedia itself. So that you're not distracted!
Psst! You can also add a keyboard shortcut through Chrome settings. Then the extension will work even if the icon is hidden away.
A few known issues:
- Some disambiguations will not redirect properly
- Images sometimes don't show up correctly
- This is not Wiktionary so sometimes it will not show the meaning of certain words
- Currently searches EN Wikipedia only
