Freenet Review

Access an entirely different realm of the Internet using Freenet. This software believes that being able to publish the content you want and reading the content you want on the Internet is important. Freenet allows you to access the Freenet network, which is a free network without restrictions that anyone in the world can access by simply installing the software and connecting to the Freenet network. 

If you are familiar with the darknet, Freenet uses a similar network approach which allows you to access certain websites on a network that is only accessible using software connecting you to the Freenet network. The communication by the software's nodes are encrypted and routed through other nodes to make it a lot more difficult to trace where the information is being requested from, essentially making you anonymous on the network

Users give into the network by giving it bandwidth and a portion of their hard drive for server space on Freenet for storing files. These files are automatically kept or deleted depending on their popularity on the network. All of these files are encrypted so users cannot easily discover what is in their datastore on their hard drive as an attempt to make it hard to read the files so the user is not held accountable for them.

Freenet has been downloaded over two million times, and is very popular in China and countries in the Middle East that suffer from content censorship on the Internet. The software and its network has the purpose of allowing those that are under high censorship laws in their country to deliver and access content to and from others on the Freenet network that wouldn't otherwise be able to share this information on the Internet in their countries.
