It doesn't bother me. It loads faster than loading Wikipedia. If I am looking for some quick information it is perfect. If I plan on reading an entire wiki article, I just click view original.

I'm pretty sure most people are interested in reading more than just a few tid bits and if not they usually end up drawn into it. It's a horrible implementation.

I no longer have it which is incredibly unfortunate.

I absolutely loved it.

Thanks a lot.

How could you possibly have loved a 25% smaller screen?? Not to mention it wasn't always updated
