This will make a great extension for Chromebook users to have something productive to do while going offline. However, today I am sharing this with a special intention, Wikipedia’sÂ decisionÂ to do a blackout on 18th of this month, protesting theÂ SOPA bill.
On 18th, all the English content on Wikiepedia will be unavailable. If you are someone who can’t live without Wikipedia for one day, this will save you the day.
As users of this extension has pointed out, this is a brilliant example of what HTML5 can do. This application saves and downloads a copy of nearly all of the textual content of the English Wikipedia locally so that it can be accessed without internet connectivity. It downloads and saves a compressed dump file and an index, 14MB for the small version and 1GB for the larger one (you can select which one from the settings)
Like it? Spread the word!! ThanksÂ antimatter15 for another brilliant extension!!!!!!
