Gollum Wikipedia Browser

By Posted 2005 Updated   Tips

If you are fan of the of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, then you may like the Gollum Browser

Gollum is a Wikipedia Browser
for the fast browsing through the free encyclopedia Wikipedia. Gollum gives you access to nearly all Wikipedias in all languages with some special features to make usage of Wikipedia more easy.

And what runs behind the browser

“Gollum is based on PHP and Javascript using XMLHttp request for communication, better known as Ajax. That means, there is no need for databases and the code is ready for PHP5. Therefore, the client is only required to use a browser like Firefox, MS Internet Explorer, Netscape or Safari with activated Javascript. Safari has yet to be tested.”

Upon clicking “Start Gollum Browser” – It runs is a new window in Firefox for me, allows you to add dedicated Wikipedia Bookmarks in a sidebar, get to the homepage quick, and seems a Gollum browser beta download would be available soon!
