This script is an easy way to try out and view Wikiwand which is a Wikipedia beautifier with a clean and modernized style. It automatically displays any (english) Wikipedia article page as its Wikiwand version. This script may completely replace using the chrome store addon while using less memory since it only loads when on wiki pages whereas the addon stays loaded in memory all the time. You may also temporarily switch back to Wikipedia at any time by using the Wikiwand menu setting.
