Web of Browser’s (Brittany Region and Labex CominLabs 2019-2020)

Participant : François Taïani.

Browsers are de facto the most widely deployed execution environments in the world. Initially simple HTML readers, they now run complex applications interacting with humans and web services. The recent introduction of WebRTC has further extended the capability of browsers by introducing support for browser-to-browser communication. This turns browsers into a decentralized execution environment where interactions between human and web services are enabled without third party.

The Web of browsers is a vision where the web is serverless, ephemeral and massively decentralized. Web where pages are hosted by networks of browsers connected through WebRTC. The objective of the project is to build and experiment the Web of Browsers.
