TL;DR: js-IPFS is being deprecated, and has been superseded by Helia.
There are exciting times ahead for IPFS in JS. Some of you may have already heard of Helia, the new implementation that’s designed as a composable, lightweight, and modern replacement for js-IPFS.
It has a simplified API which can be extended by other modules depending on the requirements of your application such as @helia/unixfs, @helia/ipns, @helia/dag-cbor and others.
It ships with the latest and greatest libp2p, which means it has the best connectivity options, including the new WebTransport and WebRTC transports that dramatically improve the connectivity options for browser environments.
js-IPFS is in the process of being deprecated so you should port your apps to Helia to receive bug fixes, features, and performance improvements moving forwards.
