Hi Domenic

Thank you for getting back to me.

side.

Is it correctly understood that with "implementers" you refer to the team
behind each browser implementation? Firefox whitelisted "ipfs" as a safe
scheme in January 2018:
https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/c2cb8a06bcf1

I know that Firefox is more "out there" being a trailblazer for new
features but it does indicate that  there is a case for adding "ipfs" to
the safelisted schemes provided in the HTML specs 8.7.1.3 "Custom scheme
handlers: the registerProtocolHandler() method"  (
https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/system-state.html#safelisted-scheme)

update this list.

Pressure is built one drop at a time.
