Project Spotlight: the Beaker Browser
Remember when you loved the Web? Remember when it was creative, fun, open, and full of potential? Remember when everybody was going to have their own webpage?
Those days are coming back with the Beaker Browser.
Beaker is an experimental new browser that publishes websites using a peer-to-peer network. Beaker is helping to create a Web where servers are optional so that users have control over the source code, data, and network.
Beaker aims to make the Web a place for creators--not just for consumers.
What can I do with Beaker?
Create a website with one click. Go to any p2p website and fork it. Use new web APIs to create self-mutating websites. Build pages quickly using markdown. Contribute bandwidth to peer-to-peer websites.
How can I get started?
Download the browser from beakerbrowser.com.
File issues at github.com/beakerbrowser/beaker.
And tell us about your creations by pinging @BeakerBrowser.
