Utopia ecosystem is based on its own peer-to-peer (P2P) network. Among other things, the network enables you to host and transmit to fellow Utopia users any websites or web services of Idyll Browser.
Idyll browser is a built-in browser used to surf web resources within Utopia network. It is based on the latest Tor browser. As the Tor browser is a collection of patches for Firefox, we used some of those patches to create a secure browser for Utopia network.
The browser is specifically designed to be used within P2P Utopia network ensuring privacy and protection against data leaks of your operating system.
To start Idyll browser select “Tools” → “Idyll Browser”
