Check out AmiGemini 0.10! A new version of this Gemini web reader. The biggest introduction in 0.10 is Finger support. So, now AmiGemini is a browser for Gemini, Spartan, Gopher, and Finger protocols. Karl Jeacle is fantastic at keeping updating this amazing unique web browser for Amiga home computers.

For many Amiga users, this is a not-so-known name. Finger protocol is in computer networking, the Name/Finger protocol and the Finger user information protocol are simple network protocols for the exchange of human-oriented status and user information.

The finger program was written in 1971 by Les Earnest who created the program to solve the need of users who wanted information on other users of the network. Information on who is logged in was useful to check the availability of a person to meet. This was probably the earliest form of presence information for remote network users.

In addition to this, the AmiGemini archive now also comes with a version compatible with AmigaOS 4.x. The 68k version works nicely on MorphOS as I’ve tested it myself.
