“Crypto Browser is more than just browsing traditional sites with a one-stop solution. It is specifically designed to interact with various decentralized applications, and also provides deeper functionality than a traditional browser with a basic web wallet extension,” the company said in a statement.
The browser has included a new non-custodial wallet that allows you to directly access cryptocurrencies or log into dapps without installing any extensions.
The developers have also provided a secure clipboard that ensures that no applications change the blockchain address or other sensitive data.
The new browser features a Crypto Corner themed page containing the latest crypto industry news, asset prices, educational content, a calendar of events including upcoming airdrops, and other industry information.
Twitter, Telegram and WhatsApp are integrated into the Crypto Browser sidebar.
The app supports multiple blockchains including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Celo and Nervos. The developers announced the imminent integration of Ethereum L2 networks.
“As interest in a more decentralized web continues to grow, we have decided to play an active role in shaping what the next generation of Internet access will look like and operate,” the company said.
In 2018, the firm introduced a Web 3.0-ready browser with a built-in Ethereum wallet for Android. Six months later, a version for iOS was released.
In 2020, Opera became the first major browser to add decentralized domain support through a partnership with Unstoppable Domains.
