Comment (by mahrud):

 Replying to [comment:4 gk]:
 > You mean it showed `gclound`, right? And not `alt-gcloud`. Because
 testing with the latest edition of Firefox nightly that's what I get.

 Sorry about the radio silence. I didn't get a notification about your

 You're right, sorry about the confusion. Try
 https://perfectoid.space:8443/ and you'll see "alt-gocloud" first (using
 exit node), and after that you'll see "alt-gobad" (using onion service).

 After I posted my comment I slightly modified the config so that both :443
 and :8443 give Alt-Svc to my onion service on their respective ports, but
 :443 redirects that request to a Cloudflare server (hence displaying the
 original "gcloud", but still through the onion service), while :8443
 serves "alt-gobad".

 The :443 port demonstrates the complete onion alt-svc idea: the final
 result is the same, but safer and ideally faster, whereas :8443 is a proof
 that the route has changed.
