American multinational information technology company IBM has filled patent for a blockchain-based browser.
According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, a computer-implemented method records and maintains a record of browser events in a blockchain using a peer-to-peer network.
One or more processors detect one or more browser events for a browser on a computer.
The patent also states that the present invention supports a browser privacy mode in a plugin of the browser, which may use blockchain. Even if using this mode triggers locally cached data to exist entirely in volatile memory without saving to persistent storage, the block can be updated with some portions of this information.
Previously IBM filed a patent describing a system that uses blockchain technology to allow autonomous vehicles to predict the behavior of human drivers, according to a patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on April 2.
