A StarkNet wallet in your Browser.
Braavos was created with the goal to make a self-custodial wallet which is easy and reassuring to use as a custodial solution, while not compromising on the huge benefits of decentralization and self-custody of assets.
It is an extension for accessing dApps and holding assets from within the browser, running on StarkNet, a ZK roll-up on top of Ethereum (layer-2).
The Braavos extension creates a bridge to every website, so that dApps can communicate with the wallet.
Once a dApp wants to perform a transaction through Braavos, the user gets a secure interface to review the transaction in a self explanatory way, before signing or rejecting it.
Braavos requires the permission to r/w to any webpage in order to add the desired functionality to the normal browser context.
