What is Wikalong?

Wikalong is a Firefox Extension that embeds a wiki in the Sidebar of your browser, which corresponds to the current page you are viewing.

In its simplest form, a wiki-margin for the internet, but it can be much more.

We need to finalize a logo.

What are some possible uses?

  • Also See. Interactive pointers on where else to look
  • Discussion. Just plain old commentary
  • Notes. Plain old note taking
  • A roaming blog. Use kwiki's blog feature and you can edit, others can view your thoughts on a site by site basis
  • Web Site development (don't forget you could restrict your wiki behind http auth)
    • Developer Notes, todo lists on a page by page basis.
    • Corporate Notes, suggestions to developers, things they'ld like to see
    • Support / Sales Tool, script or advice to support team (on a per page basis, you get the idea)
    • Users install for self help
  • Adblock. Recording of effective Adblock filters for the current page.
  • Product reviews. Perhaps eventually with Amazon-like ratings?


What's left to do?





  • Pierre Magistry for help with migration to Firefox 1.5 and cleaning up the layout of the extension files.
  • Yhancik for current WikalongLogo
  • I just want to thank all the people that have been using this and getting it started! I appreciate your patience with the numerous bugs and problems.
  • Many more to come for helping me with this.
