Kiwix enables you to have the whole Wikipedia at hand wherever you go! On a boat, in the middle of nowhere or in Jail, Kiwix gives you access to the whole human knowledge. You dont need Internet, everything is stored on your computer, USB flash drive or DVD!
Kiwix is an offline reader for web content. Its software intended to make Wikipedia available without using the internet, but it is potentially suitable for all HTML content. Kiwix supports the ZIM format, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data.
Kiwix is mostly installed in schools, universities and libraries which cant afford a broadband Internet access. It is much faster than the Internet and also can be used by many institutions to save bandwidth and readers time. But many people use Kiwix for their own personal purposes, for example, of people suffering from censorship or prisoners.
