This browser is the first with something that could be the future: dropping HTTP

Share on

Brave, a browser with a privacy focus, is the first to integrate the new P2P protocol.

The InterPlanetary File System is like browsing a p2p web
The technology, in this case, is called IPFS, which stands for InterPlanetary File System.

The point is to drop HTTP and instead use this new transport protocol which not only makes things faster but which also withstands breaks in the network to a greater extent.


Because the whole point is to decentralize the content, you ask for the name of the file, and not the whole address as with HTTP. The file is located at one or more nodes.
The Brave browser has 24 million active users every month.
The browser has supported the technology since 2018, but it is not until yesterday's launch of version 1.19 that it is now finally possible to reach IPFS content from ipfs: // addresses. It is also possible to become a node in the network.

We have previously written about IPFS for use in file-sharing:

The head of the IPFS project believes this is the solution to censorship
Molly Mackinla leads the IPFS project and says that this can solve the problem of "systematic data censorship":

“TODAY, OVER 100,000 WIKIPEDIA WEBSITES ARE BLOCKED IN THAILAND, AND CRITICAL INFORMATION ABOUT COVID IS BLOCKED IN CHINA. NOW ANYONE CAN DOWNLOAD CRITICAL INFORMATION THROUGH IPFS WITH BRAVE ”.

An advantage is that it is possible to hash-check the file, and thus find that it is secure.
