I just thought about a possible (partial) solution to solve the "UX disaster" of next-gen onion services, namely the very long addresses. Tor Browser already ships with HTTPS
Everywhere, and one can easily write rules that redirect from http or https to onion services, as an example,


If there was a possibility to add all the famous and most used onion services (facebook
for example) into those rules then that effectively solves the UX problem for most of these
onion services, since the user will no longer have to bother about finding the right onion

What do you think?
