Power-editing with AutoWikiBrowser

Would you like to know what the power users of Wikipedia use to edit it? The AutoWikiBrowser, of course.

AutoWikiBrowser (aka AWB) is a semi-automatic Wikipedia editor. It works on lists of pages, and automatically takes you to the next page on the list when you are done with the current one. It performs search/replace, and has other powerful features. In order to use it, you must either be a sysop or an editor with over 500 edits.

AWB is very useful and helps perform WikiGnome tasks very quickly, like stubs sorting, substituting templates, and searching/replacing.
