68k.news and frogfind.com
 
2 Attachment(s)
Not sure if this belongs in news or somewhere else, so if this is in the wrong place I apologise. I did a search but couldn't find any topics here that referred to frogfind.com

I'm not sure if anyone else here knows about this yet or not, but a YouTube channel called Action Retro has launched these two sites, designed specifically to work on retro computers from the 80s and 90s. Because they're a Apple Macintosh focused channel, their aim was to get at least some of the web usable on 68K based Macs, but they also show it working on a Windows 95 Toshiba ultraportable and an Apple IIe!

Of course my first thought was that this would also work on AWeb and IBrowse, and sure enough on my AmiKit XE install they worked perfectly!

http://frogfind.com

I thought perhaps other people here may be interested.

Here's the video for more information: https://youtu.be/c_v2_vTogS8

Nice, I didn't know about frogfind. 68k.news I found somewhere else, might have been on here. I use it all the time, it is just quicker to browse than having to load full news sites :)

I especially use it a lot on my phone (it displays a lot of news on a Note10+ large screen).

Will have to play with frogfind on AWeb :)

EDIT: Ahh, I saw 68k.news on https://www.theregister.com/2021/03/...netscape_port/

I made a similar thing as frogfind.com for my own personal use recently.

For running on your own Mac/PC. In case you are not comfortable with others knowing what sites you visit from your Amiga, use this :crazy

https://github.com/bni/retroproxy

It makes some parts of 2021 web readable in AWeb or Links, for example. No HTTPS or JavaScript needed on the Amiga.
