A new Firefox extension has been debuted that incorporates peer-to-peer capabilities into the browser via a sidebar. AllPeers "combines the strength of Firefox and the efficiency of BitTorrent" to add media sharing to the long list of available extensions.
Created by British-American-Czech software developer Matthew Gertner, the AllPeers extension uses a taskpanel approach rather than a dialogue box.
"The heart of AllPeers is the Navigator, a sidebar that provides rapid access to all the information managed by AllPeers. Since AllPeers is by nature an extensible platform, the Navigator needs to be extensible as well. That's why you see the buttons at the bottom for changing the view ("My Peers" and "My Media")," reads the AllPeers website.
