Hive Keychain is an extension for accessing Hive-enabled distributed applications, or "dApps" in your Chromium or Firefox browser!

The extension injects the Hive Keychain API into every website's javascript context, so that dApps can read from the blockchain.

Hive Keychain also lets the user create and manage their own identities, so when a dApp wants to perform a transaction and write to the blockchain, the user gets a secure interface to review the transaction, before approving or rejecting it.

Because it adds functionality to the normal browser context, Hive Keychain requires the permission to read and write to any webpage. You can always "view the source" of Hive Keychain the way you do any Chrome extension, or view the source code on Github:
