The Distributed Wired is coming, anons. Just at the time that we need it most, too.

>The Brave browser recently added support for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) protocol in its beta release channel (desktop only).

>IPFS is a peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol that can be used in web browsers to visit websites that are hosted by the website’s visitors instead of a central web server.
>This is called the distributed web.
>When you open an IPFS link (ipfs://example/) in Brave, it will open it using a public web-gateway server by default. Gateways are public web servers that proxy content from the IPFS network via a traditional web server.

I like the idea of IPFS. The real problem is getting people to use it. Doesn't matter if it solves all our problems if people don't use it. Like how Trump didn't get on gab when he was banned from twitter. Missed the opportunity to get millions of people out of a censorship regime and onto a freer platform. Now that mozilla and google are going to start censor stuff from the browser, as well as from search engines, I only hope that people will switch to free software instead of adapting to their total control.

After seeing this thread, I decided to take this version of Brave for a test drive. To see a somewhat mainstream browser support IPFS is heartening. IPFS seemed to load faster then I remember from the last time I looked into it during early testing. It was like at whatever point Tor began to not seem so impractically slow to use regularly. Brave's IPFS interface worked well aside from the fact that cutting and pasting links was a slight hassle and didn't seem fully integrated yet. Nitpicking over a small user experience issue though.
Brave browser is an interesting concept, but it is too bloated for my tastes. Interesting in that there are things like Tor and IPFS all wrapped up in one software package, but that's also the reason I dislike it. Would rather implement both those things separately. I suppose Brave has it's place and I'll follow it's progress, but generally prefer "less is more" alternatives to Firefox and Chrome.

Maybe a browser like Brave offering support will help with that?
>how Trump didn't get on gab when he was banned from twitter
Or spin up a Fediverse instance, communicate through that, and give his supporters a forum on something less centralized and more censorship proof. The hippy cliche of "tune in, turn on, and drop out" is good advice for anyone dealing with the headaches of current year centralized internet services and it's surprising that the boomers, who should be most familiar with that phrase from their youth, can't seem to apply that philosophy to the interwebs.

>isnt brave spyware
Brave does whitelists some advertisements, but discloses that fact. With the BAT token integration, it could be considered an advertising platform of sorts. If that's a concern, you'd have to lock down some settings like you would in Firefox with about:config. I'm not sure if it should be called spyware for that, but people talk shit. It tries to do many things and is most definitely bloated. Is what it is.

Maybe worth mentioning in this thread. Brave has started a search engine. Like it or not, at least it's an attempt at another competitor in a world where there is not much choice in that department.
