XOWA is an open source graphical software that allows users to read and edit various Wikipedia sources, such as Wikipedia, Wikisource, Wiktionary, Wikiquote or Wikivoyage.
XOWA is also compatible with Wikispecies and Wikimedia Commons, as well as with foreign Wikipedia sources, such as the French Wikipedia. It renders articles with full HTML formatting and includes a high-quality browser.
The application displays all articles from Wikipedia without an internet connection, works with any non-English language, downloads images and other files on demand, sets up Wikipedia in less than 5 minutes, navigates between offline wikis.
With XOWA, users will be able to easily edit wiki articles, or customize the application on many levels: from keyboard shortcuts to HTML layouts to internal options.
