Overview

Makes Wikipedia articles pleasantly readable. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Have you ever tried to read an Wikipedia article, trying to gain knowledge but the page's design just hindered your eyes from locating the words that held the desired wisdom? Well, worry no more! Wiki Readifyer makes the knowledge you are searching for pleasantly readable. The wisdom you desire to read is just one installation away! And the best thing: It doesn't remove anything from the page it only changes the layout while staying 100% faithful* to the original contents. The following changes are applied to guarantee the best possible experience: • responsive layout: articles are pleasantly readable at any window size • slight reduction of text-background-contrast • reduction of article width • moving the table of contents to the right where it stays even when scrolling • the title also stays visible when scrolling down • some other little adjustments *However, if the window width is too small the extension will hide the left sidebar, only to guarantee the best use of your precious screen space. To make it visible again, just make the window wider. In 2023, many Wikipedias changed their default theme to Vector 2022, a more modern and user-friendly theme. Wiki Readifyer does not touch Wikipedia's layout if any theme other than the old (legacy) Vector theme is active. This means, to get the advertised layouts on Wikipedias with the new theme, you have to turn off the new skin.

Simple and to the point. I was looking for an extension to fix Wikipedia's line length issue, assuming it wouldn't exist and I'd have to write it myself. But it exists! The other touches (reduced contrast, responsive layout, pinned nav) are nice additions that help make the best website around that little bit more legible/usable. The rare extension that does one thing, and does it well. To the dev: if you ever feel the desire to update, allowing users to manually set the width of the main c... Show more

Thank you so much for your kind review! I'm delighted to see others appreciate the extension exactly for what it was developed for! Also thank you for the suggestion! That's one of the things I considered adding. But you were right to assume it would increase the extension's complexity. At the moment I prefer it to be that simple. But it's one of the first things to get added if I'll decide to change directions!
