    I made a build based on a modern Windows browser in 2024 to work with the Gopher:// protocol. Now any owner of a modern computer with modern Windows can access Gopher:// without problems.

    P.s If you are not too lazy, send me screenshots of work in Gopher:// for publication on the site.

    What about us owners of a modern computer with modern Linux?

    You can use either links (links2?) or lynx. Or just gopher.

    If you are using an old computer, like I am right now (typing this on an Atari 800XL), you can connect to the Public Electronic Networked Information System with an 80 column terminal and use the door programs to access Gopher, the web, Usenet, and IRC! That's at penisys.online:6502.

    There are tons of ways to browse! :)

    Well, yes. But the point of the OP was that there as a new (?)
    GUI/graphical browser to use on gopher sites. I know about links/lynx,
    but was referring to something like firefox/chromium (in a GUI) on
    Linux.

    Hm, is the point to be able to use the mouse? IIRC those text web browsers started accepting mouse events, so just theme up a terminal with the colors of your gui browser or however you like it, and bam. It's all just text, right?

    Well, yes, again... No, the point isn't about using a mouse, and I know
    it's all text. It was about the original post specifying that this was
    all for Windows, so I wondered about an equivalent for Linux. I mean,
    it's all text under Windows, too, right?

    What would be the difference between text inside a gui window and text inside a terminal inside a gui window?

    I understand the technical difference, but from a usability and aesthetics perspective, you can make them the same.

    a terminal client can be used over ssh.

    or, possibly, as an external door to Synchronet. (assuming it doesn't have some weird "drop to shell" option)
