We believe the Web is at its best when it empowers creation and encourages participation. That’s why we’re building a browser for a person-to-person Web.Our mission:
The Web enabled communication, collaboration, and creativity at a scale once unimaginable, but it’s devolved into a landscape of isolated platforms that discourage customization and interoperability. The Web’s value flows from the people who use it, yet our online experiences are dictated by corporations whose incentives rarely align with our own.We believe the Web can (and must) be a people-first platform, where everybody is invited to create, personalize, and share.That’s why we’re using peer-to-peer technology to improve how we create, share, and connect on the Web.The two key components of Beaker are its decentralized P2P network (Dat) and its Chromium engine. Dat contains cryptography technology which lets the browser securely share and host projects without paying anything.
Basically, the browser allows you to create JS, CSS, and/or HTML websites. You can also add new files and use special URLs to share them. You can still browse the internet as normal.
Web APIs are available by the browser. They let you view, read, and write Dat archives from inside of one website. You can also do this with web apps if they won’t need remote services.
