English Wikipedia went offline today to protest against SOPA and it will remain inaccessible for 24 hours. But we can still access English Wikipedia throughout the Blackout.

Here’s how:

1. For any browser Disable Javascript and access Wikipedia as usual. Here’s how to do it in Google Chrome

  • Open Google Chrome’s Preferences
  • Click on “Under the Hood” and then “Content Settings”
  • Find Javascript then click “Manage Exceptions”
  • Type “en.wikipedia.org” into the box and pull down the contextual menu, selecting “Block”
  • Load Wikipedia as usual

2. The mobile version of Wikipedia can be accessed on a computer via http://en.m.wikipedia.org/.

If you own a website, you can also be a part of this protest by using STOP SOPA Code.
