Resolves domains from blockchain name systems: .bit (Namecoin), .lib .bazar .coin .emc (Emercoin), .bbs and others (OpenNIC).
A doorway into alternative DNS roots.
This extension allows you to easily visit websites at domain names from Namecoin and Emercoin networks, as well as custom OpenNIC TLDs. There is no configuration - simply install the package and start browsing.
Namecoin and Emercoin are peer-to-peer networks using the same principles as Bitcoin with no central authority. OpenNIC is a community-driven domain authority with a more traditional layout.
-- ATTENTION! --
Chrome will send you to Google search if you just type "nx.bit" (or any other non-standard domain name). Instead, please type either "nx.bit/" (with a trailing slash) or "http://nx.bit" (with a protocol).
Also keep in mind that Chrome makes it impossible to visit such domains over HTTPS due to unavoidable certificate issues.
