😄 Easy methods
Browse through the ton.run
The simplest way to open a TON Site is through ton.run. You don't need to install or set up anything on your device - just open the ton.run and you're ready to explore TON Sites.
This method may be suitable for casual browsing of TON Sites or for some checks, but not for regular use, because it also has its drawbacks:
- You trust your internet traffic to the ton.run
- It can go offline or break at any moment
- It can be blocked by your internet provider
TON Wallet and MyTonWallet extensions
A bit harder but better method is to use some browser extension which will connect you to the TON Proxy and allow to browse TON Sites without any intermediate services such as ton.run.
Currently, TON Proxy is already available in MyTonWallet extension and also will be available in TON Wallet extension soon.
This method is also pretty easy, but you need to install an extension in your browser to make it work. It will be suitable for most users.
Connect to a public proxy
If you don't want to install any extensions or if you are using mobile device, you can use this method. You'll have to configure something on your device to connect to the proxy.

Running your own TON proxy
