Extract Wikipedia article into README so this README can be linked to instead, addressing the article's issues. If accepted, the Wikipedia article can be stripped of the sections covered here.

Main reason was why we didn't used GitHub wiki because then we needed to keep both wiki up to date each time need to add something new, which gonna be problem.

Did you used wiki to markdown converter for this?

The Wikipedia article can contain a short summary of ShareX's features that doesn't need to be updated, while this README (or Github wiki) is kept up to date. Generally keeping encyclopedic information and the feature set segregated. I can update the Wikipedia article if that's a go.

Quick regex and manual read-over.

You may want to consider https://github.com/sides/ShareX/commit/c3056fb6d0742c90abb8202b71a93b4d3dae2497.

I forgot that and don't want to create another PR.

Oops, well.

Case sensitive replace:

user -> you
User -> You
user’s -> your

All there is, won't break anything.

Done.

There were some bits removed that weren't transferred to the README, but you should be able to find them by diffing the article's versions on Wikipedia.

I otherwise gave the article a full makeover, feel fully free to revert/edit anything that you don't like.

Thanks it looks good.

By the way I was updating features page now and because my English not very good, everytime I ask McoreD to review my changes before I upload them to wiki/markdown. So incase If you would like to help me about such things, are you using any messenger like Google Talk (Google hangouts) or Steam etc. which I can contact?
