As we all know, there are many browsers that support IPFs websites.
WebKit, an open source project of browser, supports IPFs protocol;
Chrome, a web browser developed by Google, supports IPFs protocol;
Brave for Android 57 supports IPFs by default;
Support for IPFs distributed storage protocol in Firefox .
The difference is that different browsers support different degrees. Some browsers have restrictions on users in different regions. Some browsers need to install some simple or complex plug-ins. Different browsers support different degrees of IPFs protocol and the stability of users.
Today, we mainly want to discuss the breakthrough made by opera in the cooperation with IPFs recently, that is, opera browser users / desktop users can directly access the websites hosted on IPFs.
Opera is the first browser with built-in encrypted wallet in its IOS and MAC browsers, including Android, IOS and desktop versions. It is also one of the first browsers that can protect users from camouflaged online cryptocurrency mining or “encryption hijacking” attacks. It can be seen that opera has laid out blockchain ecological support for a long time.
According to statistics, opera officially has 360 million active users around the world every month, and announced its support for IPFs in May 2020. This not only subverts the traditional search mode, but also allows users to really dominate their experience on the Internet, making it faster, more open and more secure.
Opera browser users can directly access the websites hosted on IPFs
Opera added a cryptocurrency wallet and a decentralized application browser to its mobile browser at the end of 2018, and then integrated. Crypto and IPFs on mobile devices in March 2020. The integration means that opera mobile or desktop users can directly access the distributed websites hosted on IPFs. Opera said that it is the only one in all windows, Integrated browsers are available on MAC and Linux devices without Internet extensions or downloads.
IPFs is the abbreviation of interplanetary file system, which is a peer-to-peer protocol for storing and retrieving files. What is unique is that IPFs files are not stored in one place, but all over the world. Users all over the world share their computing power to create a distributed network. With its aggregation and ease of use, browser has become a super entrance for users.
The more browsers that support IPFs, the more users will join IPFs ecology through the bridge of browsers. IPFs and filecoin network are a strong symbiotic relationship. The more IPFs network is used, the greater the demand for filecoin is; The more miners filecoin has, the more support it has for IPFs network.
