Not available on Edge
ZeroWiki intercepts any request to and fetches content from a Wikipedia mirror of your choice. It is especially useful for when you can't access Wikipedia for any reason and you don't want to deal with any VPN's or DNS settings. 

Please note that most of the mirrors available in ZeroWiki are owned by people and not companies (except for Wikiwand). If you do not trust any of these mirrors, then I suggest you not use this extension. Also, I suggest you not enter any private information (username, password etc.) on any of the pages fetched from any of these mirrors as they most probably do not have any privacy policies (again, except for Wikiwand).

Any inconveniences regarding navigation between pages or in-page anchors are caused by the mirrors themselves, since ZeroWiki does not take any action once Wikipedia content is loaded.

ZeroWiki is an independent project and is not affiliated with any of the available mirrors, including 0wikipedia and wikizero.
Risk impact

ZeroWiki requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

ZeroWiki has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
