Links don't work from the original link anymore. Needs to be updated.

Doesn't seem to work properly anymore under 10.5.6 - links become inactive on pages followed from the original link, back-tabbing replaces asterisks with letters and the links fail. Shame really as I used this thing dozens of time a day for quick searches and it's the only one there is.

it's not Mac OS X, it's Wikipedia itself, I'm having the same problem in 10.4.11

Previous version failed with the Safari 3 Beta and 0.9.2 won't work either. Just have the blue box, no input box, no information "i" etc. I've completely removed the previous version, plists and so on.

(Great little widget, use it a lot.)

I'm so glad someone made this widget. Now that I have this in my Dashboard, I very rarely visit Wikipedia in my browser. Generally, my encyclopedia searches are for fairly quick information regarding questions I find in my usual Web searches, so keeping this in a nice little widget, separate from my regular Web browsing, is great. It's even more useful for my less computer-savvy relatives, who don't know what Wikipedia is. I've installed it on at least three other computers, and they're enjoying it too.
