You would have a tough time on my wikis, because none of them have 
"view" buttons.  ;-)

If I want to see the original page, I right-click on the title link 
(which is active in Gemini) and open it in a new tab (using Firefox).

It really boils down to personal (or admin) preferences and I think 
it is just a matter of choosing a skin (or modifying one) so that it 
does what you want. In my case, my users are very fickle, and if they 
lose an edit because they clicked on a link, they will blame the wiki 
and call it "unreliable". To lessen the chances or finger problems, I 
would like to suppress the top and bottom menus on the edit screen.
