Wow. I'm impressed at how quickly the Project has advanced. So many servers and clients available within the last year (at least to my knowledge). There's even a tabbed Gemini browser, something I had really wanted personally (Fafi: Very excited about Gemini once again! πŸŽ‰ πŸ’―

@claudiom That is a new on to me :). A lot of the browsers have tabs now. Most of the more mature GUI ones do and even my favorite TUI browser Amfora has tabs.

@kelbot Ah, good to know tabs are being implemented on most of the Gemini clients. πŸ‘ I just came across Fafi from the list on the pages I linked. Castor is still sans tabs on OpenBSD as far as I can tell.

@claudiom I have not tried Castor in a while. Kristall is one of my favorite GUI browsers. It has tabs and also supports gopher, finger and http. I'm not sure how easy it is to get on BSD.

@kelbot I have it installed on OpenBSD so I'll check it out now. Lagrange just killed Xenocara, so that's a nope on that one for me. πŸ˜…

@claudiom @kelbot Personally, I'd rather leave tabbing to the WM or terminal emulator than have every program reimplement tabs its own way.

@Seirdy Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Of course, it depends on the app as well. If it's a terminal one, I can launch another instance in another Tmux pane or window, but if it's a GUI browser app, then I'd rather the app use it. The difference is like running a tabbed terminal as opposed to one terminal with Tmux having multiple panes. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ @kelbot

@Seirdy Simply put, different means to practically the same end. 😁 @kelbot

@claudiom I'll be revisiting Gemini (as a reader) soon, now that there's an Amiga client!

@conceitedjerk Oh now THAT's nice! I have to see if there's anything available for classic Mac OS as well as for BeOS, but I might have to build it for PowerPC BeOS. πŸ˜•
