Censorship has become one of the greatest problems that we can currently find on the Internet. There are quite a few places where the access to different online contents is restricted totally or partially, and that's why there are more and more projects are springing up to guarantee our free browsing.

Under the BitTorrerent brand

BitTorrent Inc. is precisely the company behind one of them. It's called Maelstrom, a browser designed over Chromium and that's based on the P2P protocol to leapfrog central servers when it comes to loading web pages: if a page is launched in torrent format, the browser can access it as if it were downloading a torrent.

An important step to improve your free browsing.

Main features

  • Browser based on Chromium.
  • Web browser based on files that can be distributed over the P2P protocol.
  • Native support for multiple protocols and types of files.
  • Download videos integrated into the interface.

This way of publishing web content opens a new channel to avoid censorship, being able to keep online any information that may have suffered an attempt to be blocked.

Requirements and additional information:
  • This is a Beta version that may turn out to be unstable.
