Browsers do not yet natively notice the availability of editable wiki pages. We expect this to change soon. For now, to be aware of wiki pages, you must upgrade your browser by adding a plugin or extension.

We will here list how to extend different browsers to support the Universal Edit Button. At this point we only know of an extension for Firefox version 2 or version 3. The following link will download and install this extension. Thanks to Travis Derouin.
