Beaker Browser

Beaker is an experimental peer-to-peer browser. Just like other browsers, you can browse http://and https://websites. Beaker also supports a peer-to-peer protocol called Dat, which means you can browse dat:// websites like dat://beakerbrowser.com.

dat://websites work just like any other webpage. They’re a collection of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files that come together to form a webpage. Just like with http:// websites, you can click links, download images, and use developer tools to interact with the page.

dat:// is a peer-to-peer protocol, which means that visitors to a dat:// site connect directly to one another, downloading and sharing files. Participants on the network are called peers, and when a peer contributes bandwidth to re-upload a site’s files, it’s called seeding.
