Despite the thriving chip market based on its technology, the ethereum does not stray from its stated goal of becoming a "global computer".
In a move that highlights developers who continue to prioritize the creation of so-called distributed applications (dapps), a new version of Mist, the original browser designed for ethereum applications, debuted at Devcon aujourd & # 39; hui. Demonstrated at the Cancun conference, Moon, or Mist-light, is a browser-based rewrite of software designed to perform tasks similar to the desktop version, but in a way that does not require a download.
Just like Mist, Moon is not just a browser, it provides an interface for dapp development.
Users can visit an application, set security or change the code, and changes are updated in real time on the webpage. This development code is hashed, then it is sharable, and anyone can plug it into its own Moon browser.
Speaking to CoinDesk, ethereum developer Alex Van De Sande explained that the concept behind the feature was to help other software developers to "learn to like the fork". Hard forks, or software updates, probably have a bad name in blockchain because they can be complicated to run safely.
But Van De Sande pointed out that in open-source software design, forks are an integral part of the overall health of applications and should be celebrated as part of that diversity.
