Nice website, better than the standard wp interface.

BTW I like the Spock quote in your sig ;)

You can only use it to browse Wikipedia. What's the point if I have to open it up when im allready in Firefox?

looks nice, but I personaly prefer www.answers.com , cause it gives info from additional source and some times they are more usefull than Wikipedia

Browsers as Webapps. Just what I've been waiting for. ;)

A browser within a browser. Even worse, if you're in a VM: a browser within a browser within a window. I prefer doing it the old-fashioned way.

I was puzzled at first, but basically it's the gnomification of wikipedia.

Actually after using it more often, I decided to delete the bookmark, I agree just set the wikipedia to your search engines and all is good again.:)

I should report you for this talking to yourself nonsense. Just because you're an ex-mod and still have green text for your username doesn't mean anything!
