Wikipedia CSS Refresh

Wikipedia CSS Refresh

If you spend as much time as Brandon does on Wikipedia, you know that the current Wikipedia design is clunky, busy and has been known to cause severe ophthalmological conditions. 

Yes, there are others who have made their own changes to Wikipedia with huge graphics and a completely new browsing experience. This project is a little simpler. It just takes the Wikipedia you know and love/hate and takes away all of the junk you don't need while adding a little bit of style and sexy. 

 

How to get this style on Wikipedia:

  1. Install a custom CSS extension on your browser. Brandon uses Stylebot for Chrome. 
  2. Copy and paste the entire following CSS code into the custom stylesheet in the extension. 
  3. Enjoy a totally refreshing Wikipedia experience!

Wikipedia is a community-based encyclopedia and this stylesheet follows the same principle. The CSS certainly isn't perfect and there are limitations due to the inconsistencies in the way that Wikipedia pages are built and elements are tagged. That said, if you find a fix to any of the problems in this code, please drop Brandon a line!
