Wikipedia Watchlist - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Checks a Wikipedia user's watchlist for updates.

Wikipedia Watchlist checks your watchlist and updates the badge on the browser action icon to reflect new changes. Clicking on the badge opens up a popup where you can highlight different changes to view their edit summaries. Clicking the little 'd' will take you to the last difference for the page and clicking the page name will take you to the page itself. Comments are greatly appreciated.

Easily the most useful Chrome extension I have. Draws the right amount of attention and lists updates concisely.

Fantastic tool for keeping up with my watchlist without having to manually refresh my Watchlist page!

Simple and very good. Specially I like number of new notifications which is very handy and still not annoying. One star is missing because "go to watch-list" is always taking me to English Wikipedia, although notifications are properly setup from different one (i.e. Serbian Wikipedia in my case)
