The MASQ Web3 Privacy Browser is Now Out in Public Beta for Everyone to Try


The MASQ web3 browser has been released on a Public Testnet and is now available for everyone to download and try, so we just did that. We have introduced the MASQ project to you last year, but it has taken quite some time for it to move from private to public beta, though that has finally happened. The main purpose of the MASQ browser is to safeguard your privacy while you are online, giving you features like no history and adblocking built-in, encrypted 3-hop routing in across other countries to provide censorship-resistance, the ability to interact with web3 services using official Metamask and Frame browser extensions, an in-built web3 dApp store and the ability to earn passive crypto by sharing your bandwidth with other users across the MASQ Network.

So, downloading and installing the 64-bit version of the Latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable did immediately resolve the Deamon is not running error message and we were able to continue with the setup procedure.

As already mentioned, the Public Beta version of the MASQ browser is running on the Polygon Testnet and does not utilize the actual MASQ tokens that are already in circulation and can be purchased of an exchange, these tokens are just for testing the browsers functionality for now.
