The Impervious Browser, the first Lightning-based web browser was publicly released at the Bitcoin 2022 Conference.
In August 2021, Impervious AI released a bundle of APIs that allowed for programmability on-top of Bitcoin's Lightning Network. These APIs enable any application or service to stream cryptographically secure, censorship-resistant data transmission channels.
The promise of this release is to bring functionality without third party intermediaries. Their overview includes the following list: Zoom without Zoom, WhatsApp without WhatsApp, Medium without Medium.
While we are excited about a potential peer-to-peer decentralized "Layer 3" without a new token, a project of this scale requires much deeper inspection before making any hot-takes. At a glance, all these recent Lightning announcements sound like shitcoin killers. However, it would be naïve not to at least acknowledge current problems with lightning liquidity, UX/UI , the gossip network and privacy for opening/closing channels. With that being said, all this recent lightning development should have bitcoiners intrigued.
