Overview

Harness the power of IPFS in your browser

ABOUT IPFS Companion harnesses the power of your locally running IPFS node (either through the IPFS Desktop app or the command-line daemon) directly inside your favorite browser, enabling support for ipfs:// and ipns:// addresses, automatic IPFS gateway loading of websites and file paths, easy IPFS file import and sharing, and more. IPFS is a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol designed to make the web faster, safer, more resilient, and more open. It enables the creation and dissemination of completely distributed sites and applications that don’t rely on centralized hosting and stay true to the original vision of an open, flat web. Visit https://ipfs.tech to learn more. FEATURES - Automatically use IPFS to retrieve sites, files, and other resources already stored on IPFS (including redirecting DNSLink hostnames to IPNS names via your choice of gateway) - Support content-addressed IPFS paths (/ipfs/) and URIs (ipfs://) in your browser, and redirect them to the gateway of your choice - Share files from your browser by importing them to your local IPFS node via right-click or drag-and-drop, including the option to preload files at a public gateway - See how many peers you’re connected to at a glance from your browser’s menu bar - Check gateway info and API status with a single click - Copy shareable links, snapshot links, IPNS/IPFS paths, and CIDs for IPFS-hosted sites - Common IPFS tasks — like pinning files and launching your IPFS Web UI dashboard — are available right in your browser - Options to toggle IPFS redirects globally or per website - Choose between connecting to your local IPFS node via the HTTP API or running a js-ipfs node directly in your browser IMPORTANT NOTE You’ll need to have a local IPFS node running on your computer to enjoy all IPFS Companion's features — either from your terminal or using the friendly, free IPFS Desktop app. Visit https://ipfs.tech to learn more and install.

I've been using IPFS Companion for quite a while, and I've noticed significant CPU usage that impacts my browser's performance. I switched to using DScan, a more efficient alternative. It doesn't need to run an IPFS node, significantly reducing the resource load on my system. It's also easier to manage my storage across multiple devices! https://chromewebstore.google.com/detail/dscan-own-your-identity-o/idpfgkgogjjgklefnkjdpghkifbjenap

The extension does what it says...but god knows what else it is doing. When enabled Chrome uses a whole CPU core at all times.

Majorly slowed down my browser to the point that I had to remove it. While I was using it, it was nice. IPFS links worked seamlessly and I could direct it to my local IPFS node
