Dat protocol browser test

The Dat protocol (dat://) is a protocol for the distributed web. Just like the Hyper-Text Transfer Protocol (http://) allows you to retrie files from a central web server, the Dat protocol allows you to send and retrie files from other users using Dat.

This page lets you quickly test to see if your web browser supports the Dat protocol. If your web browser doesn’t support the distributed web then you should consider using the Beaker Browser (for macOS, Linux, and Windows) or Bunsen Browser (for Android).
