@brandontreb Sounds like a good idea. I think there is (or at least used to be) a Micropub extension, called Omnibear, but it stopped being updated at some point. I also don't think it had that feature of indicating to the user whether websites actually supported webmentions or not – that'd be a great addition :)

@jayeless ahh thanks for that. That looks to be exactly what I want. I was browsing the source and found this in the source:

function pageSupportsWebmention() {
  return !!document.querySelector('link[rel="webmention"]');
}

It looks like it does support checking for webmention support.

@brandontreb that is a good idea. I was long thinking about having an RSS reader with post support for your own blog. Which could then offer the same. But I was always stuck on how the posting too your own blog should work. And of course Micropub would be an answer. But yeah time as always is the issue.

@V_ I love the idea of building an RSS reader with light micro pub support. I believe it’s doable if you keep the scope small (I.e. only support replies).

I actually think this is a major missing component in the adoption of the indie web. Replies are still very cumbersome.

@brandontreb @V_ Feed readers with Micropub support do exist. Monocle and Together are two examples. Micro.blog is another one, but a bit limited as it expects one (sub) domain to equal one feed.

Exactly my thought as well. You also see it by the huge explanation on each site on how you can comment.
