Context is a Chrome extension that makes reading any Wikipedia article easier and more rewarding. With Context you can click links within any article and the contents of that Wikipedia article are presented to you without leaving the page. This link is also highlighted in the main text so you can easily find your you place back in the article when you’re done reading around the topic.



The first version of Context pushes the limits of what can be achieved with jQuery alone and no real JavaScript framework. Version 2 (not yet publicly available) will use angular and generally be a lot better in terms of UX and stability. When I built Context, I wrote this blog post explaining in more detail my motivation and how it’s built.

The code for Context is available here. You can install Context and try out for yourself here.
