AllPeers Still Around

Remember AllPeers? This is the problem with staying in a private beta too long. People forget what you are or what you are trying to do. I remember getting really excited about this when the news first broke. How do I feel now? Well, some of the excitement has left me – but I’d love to check it out.

UK/Prague-based AllPeers is a Firefox extension that will allow for group P2P file sharing using the browser. A persistent buddy list in a sidebar is created. Files can be shared with those buddies by dragging a file, folder or URL into their name. It’s just as easy to share the file with multiple people. The core technology is based on bittorent.
