I have created for myself a little Wikipedia button in my browser that I find very useful. I want to share it with you now. It works perfectly for me in Netscape under Linux, but I assume there will be a few minor problems with Windows and IE.

NEW: there is a Windows IE version and a Netscape version. I look forward to feedback on both...

(For now visit this page: Magic Button Instructions

Then, you can go to any web page, highlight any text of interest, click the button and magically search on Wikipedia for that text.

Please add comments here, which I can switch to the other page. The reason I don't put the javascript right here on this page is that the wikipedia software justifiably doesn't like javascript on the pages.
