VisualEditor (VE) is a project developed by the Wikimedia Foundation together with Wikia.[2] It is similar to a WYSIWYG editor, and is available as a MediaWiki extension. The Beta version of this extension was enabled on Mediawiki.org and other larger Wikipedia in July 2013 by default, but users could decide to opt-out.
