IPFS In Web Browsers Working Group
Tracking the Path to getting IPFS and other Decentralized Protocols Natively Supported in Web Browsers.
Latest Beta experimentally exposes IPFS API under
window.ipfs on every web page.
Currently in order to run IPFS in a web browser, you have to either bundle
js-ipfs (full IPFS node in JS) with your client-side application
js-ipfs-api (HTTP API client library) to connect to external daemon running on local or remote machine.

See this memo. It specifies current set of conventions for the IPFS community.
We invite everyone to submit questions and suggestions for improvements via issues/PR.
