the Popup extension for the osm.org main site has just got a major rework. The
feedback from the previous version has been incorporated and resulted in a
couple of new features.
I'll introdurce them by example:
Please click on the large building "Kringlan". A blue box and a popup with all
the named features from the box appears. The page indicator "  " at
the bottom shows that there are more features to explore within the blue box.
Please click on details of "Lyf & heilsa": You will see both a link to the
website tagged on the element and the adress of the element. The details are
derived from well-known tags like here the "addr:*" family and "website".
To show further evaluated tags, you can go to page  and click "Ísland": You
will get a "Wikipedia" entry and a list of all known translations. These are
made from the "name:*" family.
In all cases, you can see all tagged details of an object on the "[tags]"
switch. If there are multiple objects tagged exactly the same way, then they
are grouped together. This happens for example on page  with the streets
To allow further inspection of the objects, you can click on each and get the
respective webpage for the OSM object.
What I would in particular ask you for: A lot of objects still show "Other
object" or unexpected object classes. This is because the list on
is yet to be completed.
If you find a category that should appear there, please add it to the feedback
