IBM files Patent for Blockchain browser

news

IBM has filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a blockchain-enabled web browser patent. According to a patent application published on Aug. 6, IBM has filed a patent application for a system that stores web browser events on a blockchain. The browser described in the filing collects information during web browsing sessions and transfers it to peers in a peer-to-peer network for on-chain storage of the in-browser events.

Examples of data that could be stored on chain include: visited websites, bookmarks, search terms, cookies, geolocation and a record of browser security patches, among others. The author of the filing claims: “The present invention affords a system for storing browsing information such that privacy is preserved and places privacy in the ‘hands of a user’ rather than a third party. ”
