Surprisingly enough, you are not required to install this utility, as it is portable. This means that the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to be affected in any way, and after its removal from the drive, no leftovers will remain.
It is also important to keep in mind that if you move the program files to an external data device, you unlock the possibility of running Wikipedia Browser on any PC you have been granted access to.
The interface you are greeted by encloses a simple and clear-cut design, as it is comprised of a menu bar, one or several tabs in which to display the actual Encyclopedia content. It becomes quite clear that all types of users can find their way around it, including those with little or no previous experience with computers.
Log in, add or look up entries, and save pages to the HDD
This software tool enables you to log in to your Wikipedia account, as well as create a new one with just a few clicks. Aside from that, it is possible to use a search function in order to find a specific article, as well as some integrated buttons which enable you to go back or forward, reload a page, stop loading a site and go home.
Multiple tabs and windows can be created, while you can save a page to a custom location on the hard drive as a TXT, MHT or HTML file, as well as display properties, such as protocol, connection, URL and modified date.
To wrap it up, Wikipedia Browser proves to be an efficient piece of software for people interested in reading the Encyclopedia’s contents or adding to it. The response time is good, it does not hinder the computer’s performance and the interface is suitable to all types of users.
