Dat is a new p2p hypermedia protocol. It provides public-key- & sha256-addressed file archives which can be synced securely and browsed on-demand. Dat supports streaming updates and partial on-demand replication, and has plans for versioned URLs and efficient compaction.
Applications such as Dat Desktop , the Beaker Browser, and ScienceFair are creating new ways to share information & interact online.
- Beaker Browser - Beaker is using Dat to rethink the web browser. It is a peer-to-peer browser with tools to create and host websites. You can also access any Dat as easy as opening a web page.
- ScienceFair - the open source p2p desktop science library that puts users in control. ScienceFair uses Dat to distribute papers and metadata.
