Editor's review Freenet

Freenet program icon

Freenet itself is free software / no charger to you to use. It channels control and access to a set of web sites called freesites where you can chat, share files, browse and post content without anyone knowing who you are, and with no chance of censorship. Freenet scatters its sites all over so no single attack would ever effect all of it. Also, Freenet has a further restrictive mode, darknet, where you can only connect with those who you designate as a friend, making it ever harder to detect. Freenet encrypts its communications and route through any number of differing nodes so that tracing and source detection is essentially impossible. As a user you give power in terms of data storage to the Freenet consortium. Files are retained only if they maintain as specific level of popularity. Unpopular content is removed as to not clutter storage. All of this action is taken to protect the identity of the Freenet user and to keep the privacy of the chatters as secure as possible.
