BitTorrent Launches Maelstrom P2P Browser to Public Beta
BitTorrent launched their Project Maelstrom P2P browser into alpha testing phase back in December. Now, after extensive testing at the hands of a given number of users for more than three months, they have launched the open beta for the first popularized browser that promotes distributive web.
It is now time for the general public to test the browser, says BitTorrent.
Today, Project Maelstrom enters its next phase by expanding our group of testers and by offering a new set of developer tools. Our test group will be expanded with the introduction of the Project Maelstrom browser beta. This is an open beta for Windows users and by empowering the browser with a distributed protocol we open a better future for publishers, creators, and users. And we do this while offering a more efficient, scalable and cost-effective alternative to HTTP.
That is not all, the Maelstrom browser’s beta testing phase will also add developer tool to it, these will be “empowering publishers and developers to leverage the efficiency of BitTorrent technology in their content and interactive experiences.”
They are also boasting that in the period of Maelstrom browser’s alpha testing, more than 10,000 developers joined hands with them alongside a total of at least 3500 publishers.
In the same announcement post where BitTorrent revealed the public beta phase, they have also boasted that this will help them change the next 20 years of internet.
