It looks like AllPeers is going to be opening their doors later tonight so that the whole world can experience the joy of private file sharing. I was able to get my hands on an invitation last week and AllPeers is pretty nice. The interface was very well designed and I received very good transfer speeds.
What’s the downside? It has been hard for me to find people I know that would be willing to install the extension. Right now it is only for privately sharing files between your friends and family but hopefully they will turn it into a more widespread thing. Not only that but I think they could have done away with the toolbar and put those options into a drop-down menu…I’m not a big fan of things that take up a whole toolbar.
If you want a peek at the goodness that AllPeers has then you can checkout this tour that they have put together in preparation for their new site launch.
