Screenshot Tour: Share files with Firefox and AllPeers
If the preponderance of file sharing web apps current springing up around the interweb are any indication, a lot of you are looking for a good way to share large files with your peers. The AllPeers Firefox extension adds drag-and-drop peer-to-peer file sharing to the comfort of everyone’s favorite browser.
[…] [T]he problem with sending large files to one other person through a web service is that you and your peer have to wait for the file to upload before the download can begin. Obviously this makes the direct peer-to-peer connection of something like AllPeers a much quicker option.
People are going to start to form Networks Of Trust.
Files will be passed along that way.
Get used to it, Suits.
