Web 3.0 Browsers

Web 3.0, also stylized as Web3, is a concept of a new version of the World Wide Web which is decentralized with more data-privacy and most importantly not run by handful of companies wherein users' personal data are being used by big tech firms. Thus, Web3 is more of Web 2.0 + Blockchain technology, so as to make internet decentralized which is focused more towards users' data-privacy.

In Web3, users can create their own platforms, profit from them, and at the same time reclaim their data. Conceptually, Web3 is a group of tools & technologies including DeFi, DeX, MetaVerse and Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT), among others.
