Announcing SearchSuite. It provides user control over search results: it can strip them down to a single-spaced list, sort, and more. Most of its features are presented as menu item toggles to turn each feature on/off. Each menu-item-controlled feature works on the output of all the others, in both their on and off states. Feedback and feature suggestions welcome.

Wikipedia:Typo Team/moss just got a fresh batch (from the July 20, 2018 database dump) of articles with misspelled words, and words missing from Wiktionary. Stop by and experience the satisfaction of fixing all the misspellings in an article on the topic of your choice!
When you activate this nifty wikitool, it empowers your mouse arrow.
When you hover the mouse arrow over a link, a preview of the article or image "pops up", so you don't actually have to go to that page to see it. If the article doesn't preview, you can activate it from the popups menu provided in the popup box (just hover the mouse over the word "popups" and then select "enable previews").
Another popup menu provided is "actions". When you select one, it applies that action to the page specified in the link you are hovering over. Actions include "edit", "diff my edit", "move page", what links here", and many more.
And you can get popups within your popups (by hovering over links in the preview)!
To activate Navigation Popups, click on the gadget tab of Preferences and check the Navigation popups box. In order to activate and use Navigation Popups, you must be logged on.
