Firefox to get filesharing extension

Posted on Monday, March 20 2006 @ 00:28:05 CET by


The venture capitalists behind Skype are betting on a new startup called Allpeers. This firm is preparing a new service that lets users share files in Firefox:
AllPeers is preparing a service that will let user share files privately through a Web browser using a "buddy list" of friends and acquaintances. Its founders, European entrepreneurs Cedric Maloux and Matthew Gertner, are hoping to ride on two popular, fast-spreading, open-source technologies: Firefox, the Web browser that's taking market share away from Microsoft's Internet Explorer, and BitTorrent, a new, faster file-sharing protocol.

While the product, a plug-in for Firefox, has yet to launch publicly, testers who have tried it have raved on their blogs about its ease of use. Unlike most file-sharing networks, AllPeers doesn't require users to download a separate software application. It's a compact plug-in for Firefox, so it runs as an add-on to the browser.
More details over at CNN.
