Review of WikiWand
It's horrible. It completely destroys infoboxes, arbitrarily turns images into banners, removes descriptions including vital context on images and just defaces pages in completely nonsensical ways. It only has a superficial veneer of 'polish' but it messes up the formatting of pages and charts in simple ways. I will take a design that is robust, predictable and 'basic' over one that is 'pretty' but behaves in the stupidest of ways. It doesn't have to be like that, but it's obvious if you look at any number of diverse pages, that very little work was put into this, it's really quite shallow.

Review of WikiWand

WikiWand is an essential browser plugin. Wikipedia is a mainstay of the Internet, but let's face it: the formatting is horrible. Proper formatting can help with readability and the ability to quickly digest information. WikiWand provides that.

The plugin automatically reformats any Wikipedia page you visit, making it more readable and reduces how far your eye has to track across the screen. There are some basic formatting adjustments, which are nice.

Once you've used WikiWand and then see a normal Wikipedia page you'll really notice the difference and how spoiled WikiWand makes you.

It's a must-have plugin.
