Does the Web need an Operating System?
Friend is a new operating environment that is being built into the internet itself using Blockchain technologies. It's a personal cloud computer - obtained through a url: link - where your files, apps, and services can reside. It can be accessed from a browser on any desktop (Windows, Mac, or Linux), from smartphones, tablets, etc. (iOS, Android), and through other technologies such as TV, AR/VR, and Voice. Completely open source, free and community sustained. And with a commercial license for the Enterprise.

FriendUP is an open source meta O/S that provides a device and platform independent computing workspace enabling rapid applications development and wide-scale deployment, and offering powerful new capabilities over today's user desktop and applications delivery. The Friend Unifying Platform also includes a network management component that enables client devices to share code and computing resources with other clients and decentralized servers. The Friend Network forms a ‘pool’ of shared nodes that may programmatically lend or borrow underutilized processing resources to/from other clients in the network, and pay or earn tokens. This concept brings the Airbnb and Uber sharing economy models to computing and collaboration.

As the preferred solution to enable Dapps to run anywhere on any device, Friend is positioned to become the default tool for application deployment in the Blockchain ecosystem.
