Opera browser has announced it became the world's first browser to introduce Web 3 capabilities and a built-in crypto wallet across its mobile and computer browsers.
Thanks to the partnership with Unstoppable Domains, a blockchain naming system built on the Ethereum blockchain, Opera users are getting the ability to access the cloudless, decentralized web of the future through IPFS-protocol support.
The browser's users can also send & receive cryptocurrencies via browser by integrating a crypto wallet.
"When looking up a file to view or download, one asks the network to find the nodes that are storing the content behind a given file’s name. One doesn’t, however, need to remember the hash as every file can be found by human-readable names using a decentralized naming system like Unstoppable Domains or the Ethereum Name System (ENS)," an announcement states.
Thus, all files and websites can be stored in a decentralized and secure way just as it works in the case of BitTorrent, Opera highlights.
Currently, the Opera browser has approximately 360 million users all around the world.
Earlier iHodl reported that the developers of the popular web browser Opera have added new functionality that allows users to buy BTC and ETH directly from Opera's built-in wallet.
