The Wikipedia Usability Initiative has been working hard to improve the usability of Wikipedia. Would you like to try our Beta?
What has been improved?
- Enhanced navigation
The new navigation system makes it easier to see where you are and what you are doing, as well as where you can go and how to get there. With the search box located in the top right corner, the search feature is easier to find and quicker to use.
- Edit toolbar improvements
New-and-improved icons make it clearer what action each tool performs. Expandable sections reduce clutter while keeping infrequently used tools just a click away. The help section provides quick access to a reference for common uses of wiki-markup.
