browser extension

(NOTE: The Conzept extension needs to be redesigned and rewritten)

The Conzept browser extension (source) is a lightly-patched fork of the great Wikidata-for-Web extension.

The extension aims to semantically integrate any website with the Conzept encyclopedia. By “string” and by “thing” (semantic entity).

The Conzept extension allows you to:

  • Do a text-selection search: Select some text on any website, then right-click for the context-menu , which will show an option to search on Conzept. Even browser-viewed PDF files are supported!
  • Detect and see the semantic metadata on (supported) websites, in a sidebar panel. This works through Wikidata-based URL-matching and by checking the website for embedded metadata (meta-tags, JSON-LD).


* Firefox version

* Chrome version (TODO. Not yet published, first requires conversion to “Manifest v3”)



  • Add multi-lingual support to the entity view (use a language switcher or take the language from somewhere else?)
  • ? Name-entity-linking on 3rd-party webpages, how would the UX for this look?
  • ? Take a look at the Safari extension store too, with an Xcode-requirement (which I don't have access too, but maybe there is some way to get that done as well).
