Starting with Firefox 59, several protocols that support decentralized architectures are available for use by extensions. The newly approved protocols are:
- Dat Project (dat://)
- IPFS (dweb:// ipfs:// ipns://)
- Secure Scuttlebutt (ssb://)
I don't understand why Firefox 59 approved Dat, IPFS and Secure Scuttlebutt but didn't mention ZeroNet. Because ZeroNet main devs has less communication with Mozilla or the Firefox team? Or the quality of ZeroNet is not good enough? Or because some trolls keep posting hostile content, some people posts illegal content here but they can't be censored, Nofish takes it as low priority and so the platform got ignored? He got invited to TED2017 (but his talk was cancelled several weeks before the conference began.. he still got invited as an audience though), and even RMS reached him and asked for changing the license of ZeroNet from GPLv2 to GPLv3 (but he didn't do it..).
Adding zero:// for ZeroNet can make typing .bit address easier and make the address neater, and it has been discussed several times before.
Nofish said that it always works in this post, but that method only removes localhost:43110 or replaces it with zero, it's still not ideal.
@Polar commented "May ZeroNet is indie, have no company support". I totally agree with it. Firefox is opensource, so I guess the best approach would be by reading the related code and adding it by ourselves.
Btw, recently I'm rocking ZeroBlog design again ^^ Available at ZeroBlog Plus
