I started using this last week. I love the look and feel...but regular Wikipedia is a sans-serif font and the WikiWant is serif. I find the serif font they use harder to read than the standard Wiki, especially when trying to read much longer articles. For a site meant to be read, readability issues are critical...but maybe others prefer serif fonts for reading...

@UXAndrew thanks! I appreciate the feedback. We're working on introducing customization options for WikiWand, such as font type (Serif vs. Sans-Serif), font size, margins, and more :)

@liorgrossman I'm still using it even with the serif font, simply because I love the design so much. Also, I'm a Firefox user, so thanks for developing for us as well :-)

I've been using this for the past few days now, and I can confidently say that it makes my Wikipedia experience a lot better. Its actually increased the likeliness that I would click on a Wikipedia link appearing in search results.
