An IPFS gateway is just an HTTP gateway to IPFS. Browsers don't properly support IPFS yet, so for now IPFS content is served to browsers over HTTP gateways.

If you have IPFS installed and running on your computer, you'll use your local gateway (http://localhost:8080/ipns/, otherwise you can use public gateways, like what LibGen's offering.

You can actually use only IPFS to host a website on HTTP and IPFS now-- i.e., will lead to's IPFS->HTTP gateway... I've got that setup (, and is set up the same way. It's pretty sick.
