When you hover a link to another article on Wikipedia.org/Wikia.com or tap on it, a small pop-up will show you the title section of that article. Features: * Full touch support * Load first paragraph and thumbnail * 4 themes (Wikipedia, white, black, grey/blue) * Customizable font-size and transparency * Works in Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Firefox for Android This add-ons code is available on GitHub (https://github.com/NiklasGollenstede/wikipedia-peek). If you have any problems, please report them there (https://github.com/NiklasGollenstede/wikipedia-peek/issues). The add-on itself does not collect any data. Note however, that the article previews are queried form the target host in a separate query each time you hover over a link long enough.

Doesn't work on latest Chrome. Shows a short loading animation, when hovering, but no pop-up appears.

Absolutely love customization! The best wikipedia extension I've seen so far.

Does what it says on the tin and doesn't seem to be doing anything dodgy.
