Wikimedia Foundation announced the release of a Wikipedia redesign this week. I was surprised because I do not think I have seen the Wikipedia design change in many years. Take a look and make a contribution after you read something interesting.
Why It Matters
Wikipedia is a treasure of the Internet and it was starting to feel a bit dated. This redesign makes Wikipedia a bit easier to use and navigate.
What I Like
- The navigation bar on the left for the table of contents.
- Better spacing for menu items and labels.
- Using color and an underline to delineate the currently selected menu item.
What is Missing
- Wikitext markup is still confusing compared to Markdown.
- Inline section header links.
Refactoring UI is a book from the authors of Tailwind CSS on improving user interfaces.
