TRON releases TronLink that allows users to access the blockchain on the browser
Back in July, the creators of TronWatch announced that they were developing TronLink soon after the successful launch of its mainnet. Now, TRON founder Justin Sun announced on Tuesday that TronLink has been officially released.
TronLink is developed to simplify the access to the TRON blockchain from internet browsers such as Chrome and Firefox, just like MetaMask does with the Ethereum network. With TronLink, interacting with the DApps will be easier for developers.
With TronLink Beta, developers will now be able to access #TRON’s blockchain, create and interact with decentralized applications from their Chrome and Firefox browser. More #Dapps on TRON very soon! Thanks @TronWatch ? $TRX https://t.co/5fCic7BQ67

The TronWatch team also informed developers that the currently available version is in its beta stage, which means it is not ready to be launched fully yet. Developers can test the app and inform the team of bugs and issues, thereby readying it for a full launch.
Currently, the extension is available at the Chrome Store and the Firefox Add-ons page. One can also use TronLink inside the Brave browser, as mentioned in its official announcement posted on Medium.
The post also mentions that while installing the extension for the first time, users will have to enter their password twice. After this step is completed, a backup phrase will be provided which can be used to recover the app and funds when the need arises.
Also, TronWatch is building one of the first fully-featured decentralized exchanges of TRON. It will make trade easy and secure between TRX, TRX10, and TRX20 tokens. The network aims to ‘decentralize the web’, and building a decentralized exchange takes it a step forward towards its goal. The decentralized exchange, called TronWatch Market, will help increase the liquidity of the TRON Token Network, according to the whitepaper.
