In Detail:

The largest encyclopedia at your fingertips
WikiBuddy adds a small icon to your menu bar to instantly search Wikipedia. It immediately displays search results in all languages specified in the preferences.

Streamlined browser
WikiBuddy comes with a powerful article viewer. Wikipedia never looked nicer and never was easier to navigate. Quickly jump to different sections or languages with a single click.
Articles are automatically reformatted for an optimal browsing experience. Clicking on an image opens the file viewer displaying a larger version of the picture.

Quick navigation
All sections from the current article are directly accessible from a quick navigation bar. This way, you can jump to the section of the article you want to read without having to scroll through the whole document.

Access WikiBuddy from any app
Simply right-click on any word in any app or hit a configurable shortcut to search for articles. WikiBuddy opens an in-place search window and displays results instantly.

Weaknesses & Strengths are mixed

- The Contents of articles have an easy title bar icon access.
- It is easy to switch languages.
- Easy menu for links within article.

- The interface is not particularly good, which really drags the app down.
- The app is a menu bar item with a floating window, which means you can’t switch to it with command-tab (may also be strength for some users – should be option)
- The app does not maintain Wikipedia webpage formatting, which is a crying shame, because Wikipedia put a lot of thought into it. This is the biggest issue in my mind.
- The contents are displayed at the bottom (c.f. Safari’s status bar). Should be on a side pane.
- The interface is just plain ugly.
