File sharing in Firefox with AllPeers

I read a blogpost on Webbomedia by Per-Åke Olsson about a new firefox extension called AllPeers. It is a cross-over between instant messaging and file sharing. Files are shared by drag-and-drop to your friends and family.

It is using Bit-torrent technique but no uploading is required. The data is being loaded directly from each user's hard drive and there is no size limit. It is only possible however to share and upload with users on your contact list.

Seems like a great and useful application. Haven't been able to use it fully yet though due to few people in my contact list.

Take the tour and learn more.
