dBrowser Introduction

What is the P2P Web?

The P2P web, aka the distributed web is made up of dSites (distributed websites) and dApps (distributed and/or decentralized applications) that are peered, seeded and distributed via a peer-to-peer protocol like dWeb

A few attributes of the dWeb are as follows:

  • dSites / dApps are not bound to ip addresses and are truly serverless.
  • dSites/dApps and files/media are downloaded via peers aka people (users) on the dWeb rather than servers and data centers
  • Anyone can upload dSites/dApps to the dWeb for free and anyone can access them for free.
  • Anyone can fork aka clone a dSite or dApp via the dWeb and make their own version, because the dWeb is based around the principles of freedom and open source.
  • Anyone can seed a website, to strengthen its reach to users around the globe using dBrowser or other future dWeb-enabled web browsers.
  • To publish dSites/dApps to the dWeb, no servers are required to do so.
  • Thanks to dWeb components like dDatabase and decentralized networks like dPay and Arisen, there are plenty of APIs and/or blockchain-based APIs for building distributed and/or decentralized applications or websites that are economically driven.

What Does a P2P Browser Do That Other Browsers Don't?

  • Publish dSites and dApps straight from dBrowser, where the dBrowser application is the only requirement.
  • Manage dSites/dApps through the built-in repository, where you can also fork other dWeb user's dSites and dApps and import them into the very same built-in repository.
  • Powerful View Source and in-browser IDE
  • Live reloading for dSites and dApps
  • Offline Sync for viewing dSites and dApps offline (Even data-driven dSites/dApps)
  • You can also browse http:// and https:// websites with dBrowser, and dBrowser's browsing interfaces should feel comfortable and familiar.
