American technology behemoth 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. Earlier this month, IBM and blockchain company Chainyard launched a new blockchain network for supply chain management.
The Trust Your Supplier network's founding members also include American brewing company Anheuser-Busch InBev, tech companies Cisco, Lenovo, Nokia, Schneider Electric, British pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline and telecoms company Vodafone. As Cointelegraph reported in June, Norway-based internet browser company Opera has launched the iOS version of its blockchain-enabled mobile web browser, Opera Touch.
