DNS over Wikipedia
Item video thumbnail

Overview

Resolve .idk domains using the URL provided by the Wikipedia page for a given topic

Wikipedia keeps track of official URLs for popular websites. With DNS over Wikipedia installed, domains ending with `.idk` are resolved by searching Wikipedia and extracting the relevant URL from the infobox. Example: 1. Type `scihub.idk/` in the browser address bar 2. Observe redirect to `https://sci-hub.tw` Written by Aaron Janse and Vihan Bhargava.

DNS translates a name into an IP address. This is not DNS per-se, it is just a search plugin for the url bar. If an analogy was needed with a network service perhaps this is more like a proxy redirector than DNS. Keep in mind: with this you will still be misdirected if your DNS/hosts file is pointing the name into a different IP than it should be.

This is the most helpful and accurate extension I have! Due to extreme marketing these days you can never know if the website you're on is real or fake, yet with this extension I can finally be sure I'm getting on the right sites. For every person that's fearing to be phished, it will be a lot harder for that to happen with this extension.
