Wikipedia - Easy Read

By Blanka Last update Apr 15, 2008 — Installed 2,621 times.

Script Summary: A restyle for Wikipedia. It wil give you better readability on modern 1200+ pixel wide screens and it hides unnecessary items. Line height and font sizes are increased for those 96dpi screens. And Times reads easier on the main paragraphs.



Modifications to wikipedia:

-Navigation column hidden
-Times 17px, 1.6em lineheight as main text
-Link colours more subtitle so they do not distract too much while reading
-Wider main text column (1100px)
-Clear separation of paragraphs
-Less visible reference marks
-Removal of content-discussion boxes (like "this article is a stub, help expanding it")

Note:
I expect you to have the wikipedia search plugin for Firefox as the search option from Wikipedia itself is no longer visible on the page. You can install it here if you do not have it:

Working in pixel measurments may not be up to W3C guidelines, but I think it prevents the page to become unreadable on the big widescreens. I think I chose a very comfortable size for the majority of use. And you can always alter it yourself!
