“Wikipedia” has existed for almost 20 years, for many years its design remained the same, users from all over the world got used to it. At the same time, administrators of the service provided users with the opportunity to help with choosing a new appearance for the site. All possible innovations are presented for review on a separate page and shown in the form of GIF-animation. Updates will be implemented at a gradual pace and taking into account user feedback. One of the changes suggests that a permanent link to the list of sections in the article will appear in the header, which will make navigation easier. It also creates more space for text. Users can hide the sidebar.
Global innovations should not be expected, since the key goal for developers is not to make Wikipedia beautiful, but to make it easier to use. The redesign is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
