Fex: ForumExplorer by Andrew McNutt
The main visual interface for threaded conversations on the internet (forums) is still mostly text.

We enact this vision as a Chrome Extension and tablet-friendly PWA, FeX: ForumExplorer, that reconstructs HackerNews (chosen for its API and emphatically not for its often objectionable content) in a way that enhances users ability to overview-at-a-glance.
