Gopher was already a historical curiosity fifteen years ago. So this is a nostalgic recreation of a retro project.

On an other note, I think I remember web browsers used to support gopher natively. I wonder when it was removed from the last major browser.

It was removed from Firefox in Firefox 4:


And it was me who did it!

Well, apparently now there's demand to bring it back with this new resurgence of Gopher :)

Any hint of guilt there?

Why are you limiting my functionality in 2016!!! You mean I have to download an ADDON to make this work?

I'm submitting a bug report right now.

At least you don't have to download an add-on to use Pocket ;)
