The Interesting Button

Wikipedia has had a “random” button for years, but this button is different. Instead of a giving you just any page, I’ve narrowed down the list to the most interesting articles on Wikipedia.

Click or tap the link below, and an interesting page will appear in a new tab. The article could be about anything—but I guarantee it’ll be good reading for at least a few minutes.

You can also take the button with you on the go by dragging this link into your bookmarks bar: Interesting Button.

Have any questions? Know something I should include? Send me an email at, and I’ll get back to you.

There are 2,328 pages as of July 9, 2024.
