Power-editing with AutoWikiBrowser

Guess 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, automatically edits each page the way you specify, and then automatically takes you to the next page once you approve the changes to the current page. It performs search/replace, and has other powerful features. It can even run an external script on each page it processes.

In order to use AWB, you must either be an editor with over 500 edits, or an administrator.

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