I do need to update that.

I'm actually not very pleased with Mozilla's gopher support a.t.m. One of
my biggest complaints is that it sorts gopher links on a page, so that any
intentional ordering of gopher URLs is destroyed. It also ignores i item
types. Add on the "no ports but 70" limitation and it's no better than IE.
Worse, in fact, since IE at least does try to use gopher+ and you see i
itemtypes (just incorrectly).
