    AllPeers released a beta Thursday of what it called the most ambitious Firefox extension to date, a peer-to-peer application that would allow friends and family to share files and content between one another in a private setting.

    Unlike the major P2P networks, AllPeers allows the sharing of files securely and privately.

    The application has been released on Firefox's extensions Web site, and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The AllPeers backend uses BitTorrent in combination with what is calls a "darknet," where the computer user will remain anonymous while transferring files.

    I guess thats the problem , you need your friends to be using Firefox and the extension .

    Do like this tho " Share 100KB, 100MB, 100GB, it does not matter! "

    Here's the Firefox link : https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3234/

    very good Idea...I know this will come in usefull to me as I have a few friends around the place I like to share with. I'd be interested in how the sharers remain hidden. I'll have to do a bit more research. Thanks for the heads up peat.

    I like the idea even if I just share with some trusted friends from this forum and family. This forum should set up something like this ?

    problem is there's no control at all of upload speed, so it kills your connection when you upload. that, and it's about as stable as mel gibson.

    i was thinking the whole forum should set up a group, then whenever someone asks for something we can just pass it about using this instead of hunting through all the newsgroups and p2p networks to find a source, then not post a direct link
