Wikipedia URL Adapter for China Users


Wikipedia URL Adapter for users in China.

Just discovered this new firefox plug-in and gave it a try right away. What it does is that it automatically replaces any URL in a webpage that contains "http://wikipedia.org" with "https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/". This way, users in China will not encounter any "broken" links to Wikipedia, given that Wikipedia is blocked in China.

Incredibly useful for users in China and for those who blogs for China-based audience. No more broken links! Hopefully, it will also help improve accessibility to the free knowledge portal - at least for next little while.
