Wikipedia Now Formatted to be Pre-Friendly

Rédigé par Derek Kessler le Vendredi 10 Juillet 2009

Wikipedia Mobile on the Palm PReSo, remember that Wikipedia link in the Universal Search? The one that, until last week, took you to the full desktop website? That’s different now, and taking its cues from a number of mobile Wikipedia apps (including the Infopedia portal in the webOS App Catalog), Wikipedia has launched a new online mobile website that gives you Wikipedia without dealing with all the desktop gobbledygook. It even gives you access to all Wikipedia intra-page chapters and image links, in both English and German. Wikimedia even made the mobile site the default for smartphone browsers, at the request of Google and Palm!

Now, this isn’t everything Wikipedia. If you want to edit something, you’re going to have to go with the full Wikipedia website. Thankfully, the folks at Wikimedia saw fit to include both a “View this page on regular Wikipedia” link and a “Permanently disable mobile site” link. It’s not a perfect solution, and they know it, so they’re even asking for your input in the creation of a full mobile editing system.
