i used it for about 2 weeks last year and i quite liked it. i found it very convenient to have a browser, p2p application and player all bundled together. however, in the end it is based on internet explorer and i prefer firefox.

Same as miner. I tried it once too. Nice idea I thought, but I can't see any real advantages over using separate p2p clients and browsers. Now if someone made something like this as a FireFox extension, that would be good!


Moving this to General File-Sharing Discussion, since it's not an 'upcoming article'!

its a cool broweser and the idea with adding p2p was cool, but their filesharing support isn't that good, they should rework it or add at least a few more networks!

I've got it installed, but I don't use it that much. It seems to continually take up bandwidth, for some reason. That seems to be how all clients for the Gnutella network operate.

all Gnutella clients do take up bandwidth, how much however depends on your position in the network. The more peers you connect to, the more traffic flow.

Yeah if Deepnet Explorer used FireFox...I'd use it.

I like it. Looks like they've put a lot of thought into it:
Tabbed Browsing
RSS News Reader
Adverts Killer

- and a bit more thought:
Phishing Alarm (using blacklist of sites - nice, you could update with a scam site list)
Form Filler

- & poss. too much thought:
Mouse Gestures
(I was just baffled)

They seem to have missed an irc client - just one reason I prefer firefox. I also still use IE because I'm lazy. There's only so much inconvenience I'll put myself to in the interest of future convenience. As above, maybe if it was configurable for other p2p networks I might overcome my laziness.

I'd imagine so. When I used DE it was for a couple weeks, and I never looked for a way to turn off the p2p part of the app. It would be a good feature to include, thats fo sho.

I prefer Internet Explorer. It's still the best browser out there, in my opinion. Firefox is just too buggy and, apparently, always will be. If it doesn't crash itself, it crashes other programs.

With a little tweaking, I think Deepnet Explorer would have more potential to become a better P2P program than it currently is.

ok ie is still stabler and works faster than firefox (if u haven't any crap on your computer) ... but i prefer firefox over it ;) we should wait for the final release of the new netscape! it makes something like a mixture between the ie and firefox engines :P

Yep, the new netscape will use both the IE and the Gecko engine, giving the best of both worlds in theory.

If i remeber correctly it'll have active X switched off by default, it should be interesting to see the browser in action.

Maybe it'll have the speed of IE but the security of firefox....one can dream.... :P

I don't want any attributes of IE. On my machine its way slower than FireFox and it picks up internet STDS and stuff everywhere.

Although it will be interesting to see whats up with the new Netscape...maybe DE can use that...either way get off the IE kick.

ie's engine wouldn't be that bad, look at avantbrowser! and even deepnet uses ie's engine ... but i'm sure the new browser will bring netscape back to the top!
