The first web browser was known as WorldWideWeb and was written in 1990. Later on, it was renamed Nexus to avoid confusion between the program and the abstract information space. That being said, it introduced the world to a program that could browse the internet.
Since then, there have been numerous web browsers developed, all of which bring something new to the table.
Unlike picking an operating system, for example, macOS, Windows, Chrome OS, or Linux, where the choice might be exclusive, you are free to download and install just about any browser you want to.
Whatever you might be using the internet for, be it work, video streaming, shopping, or social media activity, the web browser you choose to use will ultimately shape your experience.
The first thing most of us do when we boot our computers, laptops, or smartphones is open a web browser. There is a wide variety of choices nowadays, and today we’ll be going over the Netbox.Browser and comparing it with Google Chrome, one of the most popular browsers out there.
Let’s go over some of the features that make each browser unique in its way, so you can get a better perspective as to why you might want to choose one over the other.
Google Chrome provides you with a task manager for websites where you can end processes, see a visual browser history, and view clean contextual menus.
You can search for any website in the address bar, and even open website tabs that you closed by mistake through keyboard shortcuts, such as pressing ctrl+shift+T on your keyboard.
It also has a built-in password manager and can synchronize your data across numerous devices. It has a dark mode, as well as a variety of different themes, and can help you stay organized through the tabs.
But then again, numerous other browsers do those same things, and aside from the flawless integration with the Google search engine, and cross-device synchronization, it doesn’t bring anything too innovative to the table.
On the other hand, you have Netbox.Browser.
The Netbox.Browser differs from traditional browsers because it is blockchain-backed, and allows for a higher level of freedom as well as independence.
It takes advantage of what is known as the Netbox.Chain, which is a distributed transaction ledger where the transactions are written sequentially into data structures, and each block points to a previous block where the network state gets known at all times.
Every single client of the Netbox.Browser is connected to a network where each of them is a node that can confirm and store the truth of data blocks. This is done through a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mechanism, where every web browser can verify the blocks and ensure their truth with Netbox.Coins.
The Netbox.Browser has an integrated blockchain as well as an integrated wallets that can store different cryptocurrencies, known as the Netbox.Coin (NBX), as well as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
This in turn means that the browser can do work, and as such, the user activity generates revenue for the user, which on a per-day basis translates to ~$0.05. While that might not sound like a lot, given the fact that you use your browser every single day, it can eventually rise to a high-value point, and when the value of each NBX Coin increases, so will the coins you end up generating by using the browser itself.
Note that the browser does not mine using your computer resources. It offers decentralized products and gives users access to farming and staking.
Compatibility is the availability of the browser on both desktop devices, tablet devices, and mobile devices.
Both Google Chrome as well as Netbox.Browser have a native Windows application, as well as a native Android application. This means that you can seamlessly activate and use the browser on both the computers you have at home as well as the android-based device you carry with you on the go.
The Verdict — Netbox’s Innovative Model
As of June of 2021, Google Chrome accounted for 69% of the global desktop internet browser market share.
That being said, it is clear that competition is improving and slowly eating up Chrome’s market share. This is due to the lack of innovation in many departments, as well as its reputation for being a memory hog.
Netbox.Browser brings something innovative to the table by taking advantage of the Netbox.Chain to bring rewards to users that actively browse the web through the browser in the form of Netbox.Coins (NBX), which currently evaluates to ~$0.05 user activity revenue per day.
The rewards which are gained with each new block that gets processed are distributed across the participants of the network, and the more you get rewarded, the more the transactions become clearer and available to everyone.
Blockchain technology is the future, and browsers are slowly starting to embrace it.
While Chrome is lagging in the adoption of this technology, projects such as the Netbox.Browser have risen in popularity and truly bring something innovative to the world of the internet browser. Just as the WorldWideWeb (Nexus) browser shaped the browser in 1990, so does Netbox.Browser in 2021.
