[liberationtech] pgp message encryption and decrypion using just a browser

I have been experimenting with the JavaScript API for PKI that is
provided by Firefox Sync. The underlying bits are implemented in C++
(NSS), so it is pretty fast. I am slowly building up a toolkit for
messaging in a pseudo-anonymous fashion called "Droplettr" and am
looking for contributors. The entire thing is open source and is
designed to be  used like a protocol instead of a walled garden.

Repo: http://bitbucket.org/daviddahl/droplettr/

Site: https://droplettr.com/

Things are in a state of brokenness at the moment, as this is a side
research project of mine.

Regards,

David
