Wikipedia changes its design after 11 years: What’s new?

The open encyclopedia took about three years to fine-tune this redesign.

Wikipedia is undoubtedly one of the most consulted sources of information on the internet. The encyclopedia open to the public has more than 58 million articles and is available in more than 300 languages.

What’s more, according to the Wikimedia Foundation , Wikipedia has about 16 billion views every month.

And for the first time in more than 10 years, users visiting from computers will be presented with a new Wikipedia design .

Wikipedia and its new design: what changes?

New navigation on Wikipedia

Wikipedia articles will now have the table of contents on the left, allowing it to be visible no matter which part of the text you read.

Easier to change the language of articles on Wikipedia

It’s much easier to choose a different language for Wikipedia articles , with a tool located at the top of the articles.

The open encyclopedia will now have a maximum text length. Wikimedia Foundation indicates that this provides a better reading experience.

Content first on Wikipedia
