It honestly feels like a Pied Piper joke. A UI that is obviously built by engineers for engineers. Phrases like "It's nowhere because it's everywhere!".
Not to be negative about the technology itself which seems neat, if a bit oversold.
So long as there is a tracker up and people seeding it people can access you're website.
There is a add to black list button for websites you find and don't want to seed.
There are restrictions in place for websites such as only having 10mb of space but you can grant it more should you want to from the UI.
Other than keeping a website a live by seeding you also get to access the website offline, and it will resync next time there is an internet connection
That doesn't sound very completely uncensorable if someone can identify a potentially tiny number of seeders and punish them (via DDoS, legal action, social shaming, or violence) for continuing to seed a particular site. If that works, there might then be no seeders left at all.
Pardon my skepticism, but this sounds like bullshit.
Based on the docs, the pages are downloaded from bittorrent-like network. So not only your connection speed limits you, but also upload speed of the other peers.
...well, since the upload speed of other peers will probably be slower than your download speed (based on my bittorrent experience), the statement is technically true. :)
What I find most impressive about this, is that the start up experience is so solid. It just works and its fast as hell. I honestly don't even know what you lot are complaining about, did you try it?
Why are your bitcoin credentials needed? There's a limit to the data that can be attached to a btc transaction, so your pages aren't being stored in ye olde block chain?
Other comments imply a bittorrent network is involved so I am unclear how it ensures persistence?
Downloading and installing software is more than regular Joe is happy to do in 2019
Update: cool, the title is fixed, this comment downvoted.
