I recently came across this nice Firefox addon to display Wikipedia articles along with my search results. It is called Googlepedia, developed by James Hall; a software developer living in York, under GNU General Public License V2. Googlepedia takes what you type in your Google search box, finds the article in Wikipedia that matches best with your search query and displays it in your Google search results page, to your right along with the other search results provided by Google. It uses Google's I'm Feeling Lucky feature to find the relevant articles for your search queries. Since my browsing time is mostly spent on reading Wikipedia articles, this tool help me to get me to the articles I love with minimum clicks. It also removes Google AdWords, that come with every search result and uses the unused space in Google search results page efficiently to show you related articles found on Wikipedia instead of showing AdWords to the right of your search results. It works with Firefox 1.5 - 3.1b3 and currently supports 7 different languages including Chinese, German, Japanese, Polish, Czech, Dutch and Portuguese. Googlepedia also supports Google's famous Web Browser, Google Chrome and Chrome version of Googlepedia can be downloaded from here. Happy Browsing with Googlepedia :-)
