BitTorrent today announced Project Maelstrom, the first ever torrent-based browser. Traditional web browsers like Chrome and Firefox fetch data from remote servers and then renders the pages on your PC. Maelstrom would instead fetch data from fellow users who have the data you need sitting in their browser caches. It won't look different from what you use now. You’d enter a web address and the webpage would appear in your browser window. Since Maelstrom relies on torrent technology, however, it could potentially be much faster than standard web delivery.

 

If you want to use the browser, signup here for getting the invite.
