very nice

This is pretty cool - a great way to get quick info from Wikipedia! If you enter too broad of a search, you can just narrow it down.

A great extension for anyone who loves to learn and who has a curious mind. It makes it so easy to search Wikipedia at the drop of a hat. Great tool for research. The random article feature is a fun way to learn new things, and an easy cure for boredom.
