I Wish I Could Read Wikipedia Like This

"It often takes more than a few clicks to reach understanding. You dive down, deeper and deeper with each click, then navigate back up and continue reading. It's very easy to get lost and to lose your context. Don't get me wrong, I realize it's an encyclopedia and not a textbook, and every article can't possibly explain every sub-article it links to. Yet this level of normalization yields a terse, unfriendly tone, which can be frustrating if you're new to the subject and don't understand many of the terms used."

Interesting idea

That would be cool if it were implemented. In the meantime, there's a workaround we can use right now:

Right-click -> Open in new tab (or middle-click, if you have a middle mouse button). That way you don't lose your place in the original article.
