The first thing you will notice are the big, vibrant, cover images that dominate the top of an entry and provide context to the content of the article. There is a convenient table of contents on a sidebar on the left that remains on the screen no matter how far down you scroll. Links in the article have pop-up previews when you hover over them and give you a summary of what is being linked to. There is even a media slideshow that you activate by clicking on any of the images. The slideshow has all the images from that Wikipedia page.
Not convinced yet? Take a look at the images below for a before and after shot of Wikipedia and the Wikiwand version of the same page. You can also check out a random Wikiwand page by clicking here.
However, in a world of visual learners, where design is becoming increasingly important in our lives, Wikiwand stands out from the crowd as a way to access information in a clean and efficient way. If you haven't tried it yet, it is well worth a look. Check it out at www.wikiwand.com.
