User reviews
All Wikipedians should have this Chrome extension. The "|last1=|first1=" parameters should automatically be added. More options in formatting would be nice, like month-day-year dates, or <ref> tags.

A must when editing Wikipedia

Performance should be improved. Fix the performance by removing server exchanges and processing the citation on client side itself.
