Beaker Browser
Closed, WontfixPublic


The beaker browser is a Peer-to-Peer browser for the decentralized web. It allows people to create their own sites and and share them using Dat. The goal is to have a web without huge servers that host the sites but instead a bunch of users can share the site from their computers. This means that if one computer goes down the site will still be up.

Thanks to the integrated Dat support you can share encrypted pages and it also has support for versioning. That means that you can see the changes made to a website and when they were made.

Solus have nothing like it available at the moment and the Dat browser as grown a big amount of users with everything from developers wanting to make their own websites to users that want to share an encrypted file.

The whole project is open source on github:

The tar.gz files can be found on the releases page:

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
