I am constantly researching things on the internet, and
Wikipedia is one of my most-visited sources. Which is
why I propose you follow in the illustrious footsteps
of Yahoo and Google and create a Wikipedia toolbar to
allow searches of your data base from the edge of the
browser window. This would help generate interest in
Wikipedia and enhance the quality of your site.
Perhaps even a "Random" button to bring up a random
page of Wikipedia, like the selfsame link on the
margin. The possibilities are endless.

    If you are just looking for searching capabilities, in google
    toolbar, type "Site:wikipedia.org query". Alternately, go to
    any wikipedia page, type "query" in google toolbar then click
    the drop down next to search web and do search site.

    There are probably lots of other useful features that a toolbar
    like this could contain like scrolling recent changes or
    watched pages/user talk: alerts. But for plain old searching,
    no need for a new toolbar.
