IPFS now natively supported in Brave web browser
Announcing the integration of IPFS in the Brave browser, completing the vision of a native distributed web experience in a modern web browser. This is a first for browsers and a huge step towards true user agency on the web. 🎉
Join us Friday for our January meetup!
Join us on January 22, as we kick off 2021 with some very big plans! Our featured speakers this month will be the IPFS planning team, Dr. Ian Preston from Peergos, and Leandro Barbosa from Voodfy. You never know what might happen at an IPFS event, so don’t miss it.
