That's not magic but the initial idea of Peersm was to exchange
encrypted data anonymously inside browsers (so from any device, no
installation) without any third party in the path being aware of what's
going on, now the idea has been extended to pure multi-sources p2p for
Currently the interface is not designed for chat but it would be easy to
implement, right now you can upload your message inside your browser,
encrypt it and send by whatever means you like the hash_name of the
message and the encryption key to other people so they can download the
message and decrypt it (painfull to do? Not really, it's fast and it
does worth it, I take always the same example but personnaly I am quite
upset each time someone is using a dropbox or snapstuff to send personal
family photos), of course that's a standalone app inside your browser
and not a "web site" .
I don't see any cons from Nathan's list, except:
- the current phase is using our servers to relay the data but they
don't know what it is, where it's coming from and where it's going. The
servers disappear with the target phase where peers (browsers) are
relaying the traffic.
- the code is not open source (except the initial node-Tor code on git)
and easy to check.
I could add other pros I believe.
It's using the same encryption than Tor since it is based on the Tor
