Take Wikipedia wherever you go with Kiwix!

Kiwix is an offline reader for web content. It’s a software especially intended to make Wikipedia available without using Internet, but it is potentially suitable for all HTML contents. Kiwix supports the ZIM format, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data.

Kiwix is a free software, which means you can freely copy, modify and distribute it.

Kiwix is mostly installed in schools, universities and libraries which can’t afford a broadband Internet access. It’s so much faster than the Internet and also can be used by many institutions to save bandwidth and reader’s time. But many people use Kiwix for their own personal purpose. That’s the case, for example, of persons suffering from censorship or prisoners.

Kiwix is really easy to use. It provides a range of features which make the usage comfortable:

  • Full text search engine
  • Bookmarks & Notes
  • HTTP server
  • PDF/HTML export
  • User interface in more than 100 languages
  • Tabs navigation
  • Integrated content manager and downloader

Kiwix is a pretty small and efficient software. You can perfectly use it with small or old computers. It runs on a big range of operating systems, on Android and on the three main PC operating systems: Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OSX and GNU/Linux distributions.
