Abstract[edit | edit source]

Learn how to navigate the web using Wikidata, without ever visiting Wikidata. External identifiers make up 90% of properties, but do very little inside the database. Their value is to connect external sites to one another. Say you're on a webpage about a particular thing (""entity""). Click on the browser extension Entity Explosion to get information about that entity (from the URL alone!), and an explosion of links to other sites about that same entity. The data provided is sourced live from Wikidata - the Rosetta Stone of the internet - and can be retrieved in any language. How powerful can you be with a pinch of Wikidata added to your browser?
