How to use Handshake names

Currently, the easiest way to access Handshake top-level domains is by using the free Namebase chrome extension. It lets you directly enter Handshake names into the Chrome browser. It was designed to be a quick solution to let people experience Handshake without having to require any of the heavy lifting.

The ideal way to access Handshake top-level domains is to change your OS settings to point to the Handshake resolver.

The long term goal for Handshake is to get browser buy-in so Handshake names will work out of the box without any additional extensions or steps required. Brave has already expressed interest in Handshake and will likely be the first browser to adopt it. Additionally, popular web3 browsers have expressed interest in supporting Handshake too.
