IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) Extension desperately needed


Please add IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) extension or built-in support for IPFS into Brave.
This extension gives the browser direct support for the InterPlanetary File System, which is a decentralized, peer-to-peer file system that the next Web 3.0 platform is built upon. With it, decentralized websites can no longer be censored and are hosted on peers. File access is speed up as more users around the globe access them, distributing them to different geographic regions for automatic finding by clients.

I’m now neck deep in developing blockchain, decentralized software and have discovered the immense need and power for decentralizing everything. The one thing holding back users of our development is that things like IPFS are not directly supported by browsers, meaning average users are kept back from participating in the liberties and safety of decentralized technology.


Hi @PrivateUser,

AFAIK, it’s on the plan (to add IPFS support). Logged issue

Thank you,
