We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

Oh, that is an interesting point, yes. And with the .onion domain, one can be reached from the 'normal' web, too? Hey, I will create an issue for this, but - please, the app is of course open, consider contributing some code towards this!

Let's see how it works out... An alternative to certificates has to be developed and accepted some day but for now, this is indeed a massive step forward.
