Without login you can do: read default pages and follow system bookmark links: Changes - Comments - Index. You can also view wiki source - print - show referrers. While hovering over and klicking links you see changes in the status line of the browser and/or in the URL input field.

pages: read and write existing pages and linking, add content and format it, use actions[link6], register new users
page handler: work with any page: - revisions - create - clone - delete - rename - moderate - permissions - categories - watch - attachments
general page properties: edit general properties of pages: - title - keywords - description - language
extended page properties: allow: comments - files - rating - HTML features
