I noted the creation of Infogalactic, a wikipedia fork a little over a week ago. I’m not aware of a more promising venture to take on the SJW thought police than Infogalactic. It is quite simply huge. Infogalactic starts off as good as Wikipedia, and is rapidly becoming markedly better than Wikipedia.
I’d love to take on the SJWs! How can I help?
The Infogalactic home page lists several ways you can help:
How to Support
Infogalactic is a private corporation supported by donations and advertising revenue. For information on how to support Infogalactic, please see the relevant page. Please note that Infogalactic is neither a charity nor a foundation, and donations are not tax-deductible.
But there is another way you can help, and this is simply by using the superior Infogalactic instead of the inferior Wikipedia. Mindshare is crucial when it comes to forks. This is why I’ve added Infogalactic to my blogroll.
But most of us don’t go first to Wikipedia and then search for information. Most of us go to a search engine and the search engine points us to the information we want. Because Wikipedia has more mindshare, today Google, Bing, etc will point you to a page on Wikipedia instead of Infogalactic. But there is an easy fix for this. There are now browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox which will auto forward you to the equivalent page on Wikipedia:
Thanks to Blake Roussel, you can now make sure that you’re always using Infogalactic instead of Wikipedia, no matter what links Google feeds you.
INFOSEXTANT is the browser extension to automatically change Wikipedia links to Infogalactic.
Chrome (updated version): https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/infosextant/plieanmckkckfcdfaobonmmmbeniaige
Opera version coming soon. Brave integration coming soon.
Help yourself and help a good cause, by taking a minute now to ensure that you get better information in the future. I’m using the Chrome extension and it is pretty cool to watch a Wikipedia link automatically redirect to Infogalactic.
Edit: There is now an extension for Safari:
Safari users now have an extension that will redirect Wikipedia links to Infogalactic. Download it here. I am also informed that extensions adding Infogalactic as a default search engine option will be available next week.
