Hey #pubnix nerds, we're gettin' the band back together! No, wait, that's not right. We're bringin' finger back! The pubnix world has brought port 70 back from the brink of death, maybe we can do the same with port 79? I'm writing a tool and @cat, @tomasino and @julienxx have setup fingerds on their servers.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.
Basically getting gopher content, parse and convert to html, render in a web view and apply css theme. That should not be so hard I guess #PT
I want to make a Turbo Gopher clone in #rust + GTK that would support some kind of themes (css). Let’s see how hard that would be!
