Brave Became The First Browser With IPFS Integrated


The decentralized internet is one step closer to becoming a reality thanks to the developers of the Brave browser. Brave became the first browser to integrate InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) peer-to-peer protocol.


Over the past several months, the Brave team has been working with Protocol Labs to add IPFS support to their browser.


IPFS offers a number of advantages over the dominant HTTP standard, including lower bandwidth costs, decentralization and data integrity, access to censored content, and improved performance. The integration of the new protocol into the browser gives Brave users access to previously viewed content, even when they are offline.


Now the browser is used by more than 24 million users and anyone can access any page that begins with ifps: //. In addition, anyone can make their computer one of the nodes of the Network.


IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a content-addressable, peer-to-peer hypermedia communication protocol. The nodes of the IPFS network form a distributed file system. IPFS is an open source project developed by Protocol Labs with contributions from the OpenSource community.
