Wikiverse is the upgraded version of an old Chrome experiment we covered back in 2014 called WikiGalaxy. It’s designed by French computer scientist Owen Cornec who wanted to find a way to display entries in “a more engaging way.” From what I can see, the new version is a lot more colorful compared to the older one. Cornec originally wanted to color code stars according to their super-categories, but he told us he wasn’t able to do so because there are too many super-categories to count. Instead, he decided to use colors to differentiate clusters from each other and to indicate whether an entry is within that cluster or in another one. Wikiverse also feels faster than its predecessor, even on browsers other than Chrome, so you’ll have zero issues pretending to be a spacecraft exploring a universe of knowledge. – READ MORE
