    Multi-language, would be the point, not only Dutch & English It's available in many, many languages... If a topic does not exist in your native language, maybe the english wiki is shown then... Just an idea.

    Yep, an optional fallback option would be perfect, I think. Optionally, because there surely are users out there who don't understand English quite well and maybe just want "native" articles.

    I didn't know the sceenio guys had this idea before, but that shouldn't be a problem, anyway.

    I guess u need to see this differently. I would rather see a browser plugin that uses scripts to gather the information. So u could have scripts like amazon, imdb, wikipedia and other large information databases that grabs the data of the internet and places it in a nice readable layout.

    RSS support would be something nice 2.
