Brave now supports IPFS

Brave, a security focused Webbrowser, now as first browser supports the IPfS protocol, meaning that it can display webpages on a peer-to-peer network. The Internet‘s basic http Protocol normally relies on central servers which serve the content to your browser: eg. this Website runs on a Webserver hosted by mighty networks. Peer-to-Peer protocols (remember BitTorrent) work as a distributed system much like Bitcoin does and thus are more reliable and resilient than central servers. Peer-to-peer Technology is also based on the idea of shared resources, being much more performant and thus sustainable than single user systems. IPFS also points in the area of Accessibility: distributed systems can’t be restricted by central firewalls and so serve information free float and speech especially in areas with governmental restricted internet access.
