What is kiwix?
Kiwix is an open-source program used to view Wikipedia without internet access and is possibly good for HTML files. Viewing Wikipedia offline via Kiwix can be done because this software supports the ZIM format which contains the articles and contents in a compressed file.
The Kiwix software was designed to reach places, especially developing countries, where internet access is unavailable or may be costly making it good for far flung libraries and schools. The Kiwix proves to have a faster loading time than the internet allowing many users and institutions to save on time and bandwidth. However, more and more users are using this software or personal use nowadays and can be beneficial for users who are in prison or those under censorship.
Because Kiwix is free software, it makes itself portable since it can be copied and shared whenever and wherever. In addition, it is compatible to all operating systems such as Android, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux etc. This software also works exactly like a Web browser with features like bookmarks, zoom, history, shortcuts, tab navigation and even language translation. Kiwix also has its own library and search engine for ease of use.
