Overview

Search Wikipedia in every language from the address bar and context menu.

Wikipedia Search is an extension that adds multiple ways to search Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, right in your web browser. You can type "wiki" in the browser search bar, then the Space or Tab key, to start a search with live suggestions as you type. Also, selecting a word or phrase in a web page and opening the context menu will show a Wikipedia search option. You can change the default search language to any language Wikipedia supports, and the optional multi-language search feature can override it with a different choice. Search results can be opened in the desktop Wikipedia site, the mobile site, or Wikiwand. Wikipedia is a trademark of the Wikimedia Foundation. Wikipedia Search is in no way affiliated with Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Foundation.

I wanted a context menu search, and it works for that. Not happy that it altered my existing address bar search settings without asking. I use wikipedia often enough that "W" was my shortcut. This extension made the shortcut longer.

Basic Search with 'wiki' is no longer working. I'm not sure but may be due to the introduction of "wiki settings" feature the extension gets confused. The Basic Search is a very nice and handy feature. Kindly make it work again. Thanks.

Only issue is that when you try to search for an article that begins with the word "new", it then overrides the english default and automatically searches in the Newari language, which I don't know or need to search for articles in. please fix this.

Hi, you can turn that off by going to the extension settings (type "wiki" in the address bar, type something, then click the 'change language' option at the bottom) and un-checking "Enable multi-language search".
