Search engine and proxy: FrogFind! makes the web more IBrowse-compatible
The programmer of 'FrogFind!' regularly plays around with his old 68k-based Macs, which don't have up-to-date browsers or the hardware power needed for the modern web. To mitigate this problem, he has developed a portal that displays search results (from DuckDuckGo) and generates a highly simplified version of the desired page when a search result is clicked.

To achieve this, FrogFind! uses a PHP port of Firefox's "reading mode," which automatically removes elements such as menus, headers or footers and displays only the actual content of a web page. FrogFind! then simplifies the result of this operation again and delivers a page in HTML2 standard, where originally embedded graphics are now linked at the end of the document.
