Handshake names live on the Handshake blockchain, which most browsers do not yet support. While we're waiting for browsers to catch-up, below are numerous ways you can already access Handshake names in your browser.
This video covers Levels 0 to 2
Use the HNS.to gateway to access Handshake names without installing anything or changing your DNS settings — try using it to search "welcome.nb/" or any of these Handshake sites. You can also make searches directly by adding "hns.to/" in front of Handshake domains like "hns.to/welcome.nb/".

Level 3 - SPV light client
For the more technically savvy, you can run your own SPV node with HNSD to trustlessly resolve Handshake names without running a full-node.
Handshake is the only naming blockchain with a lightweight recursive DNS resolver, which you can easily embed into browsers, apps, and devices. A recursive DNS resolver is a piece of software that can recursively resolve domain names to IP addresses. The light client can trustlessly resolve Handshake names using only 10mb of memory and virtually zero CPU. It’s the most secure way to use Handshake because it doesn’t require trusting any third party resolvers that can inspect your DNS traffic.
Or just download Fingertip, beacuse it comes with HNSD installed.
Level 4 - HSD full node
