Hmm, it sounds like you're reimplementing Gnutella for the browser, which is not necessarily a bad thing!

I don't know how Gnutella works, but it's good to know! :-)

EDIT: Ok, I have just read about Gnutella design on wikipedia and although in the past I didn't understand anything (I never was too much into P2P programs since I had internet from neighbours wifi...) now I can say that yes, both Gnutella and ShareIt!/WebP2P has a lot of things on common about their purposses and how it's designed, although just by serendipity :-P This definitely it's not bad, since I can be able to learn from their errors and also I would be able to propose to extend Gnutella to support DataChannels & HTTP as transport layer, so everybody wins :-D
