I have a really modest browser extension, ZeroWiki, which redirects any request to wikipedia.org to some other Wikipedia mirror of your choice. This extension is extremely useful for people in countries where Wikipedia is blocked, e.g. in Turkey. It doesn't really need too much work, just some visual enhancements for cross-platform compatibility and usability.

A browser extension to load Wikipedia from one of the available Wikipedia mirrors, instead of wikipedia.org.

ZeroWiki

ZeroWiki is a browser extension to load Wikipedia from one of the available Wikipedia mirrors, instead of wikipedia.org. Currently supported mirrors are:

  • 0wikipedia.org (currently redirects to wiki-zero.com)
  • wikizero.com
  • wikiwand.com
  • wikipedi0.org

If you know of a trustworthy Wikipedia mirror that you think should be listed here, please send me a pull request or open an issue so that I can manage it. Conversely, if you think one of the mirrors should not be trusted and/or if you have experienced anything that led you to think your privacy was being violated, please let me know as soon as possible so I can remove that mirror from this list.

ZeroWiki is an independent project and is not affiliated with any of the available mirrors, including 0wikipedia and wikizero.

Download

You can currently download ZeroWiki from Chrome Web Store and Mozilla Add-ons. Other platforms will be listed here as they become available.
