Wikipedia is getting its first redesign in a decade

Ah, Wikipedia. From useless facts to sprawling historical accounts, the online encyclopedia has it all. Except, that is, decent web design. It might be one of the most popular sites in the world but, having not received a visual update in over a decade, it's certainly showing its age. But it seems that's about to change.

Wikipedia's parent company, Wikimedia, has announced a multi-year project to improve the website's desktop interface, and make it easier to navigate. Changes will include a reconfigured logo, a new collapsible sidebar, a new table of contents and more.
