Publish Websites Using Project Maelstrom

Maelstrom Web Developer Tools

Earlier we posted about Project Maelstrom created by BitTorrent that allows you to access websites hosted over peer-to-peer networks. Such websites do not require a standard web server, but their files are accessed using torrents. While this is an interesting project, it has some bottlenecks like the impossibility of server side scripting or database connections. You cannot really dream of building such BitTorrent sites using WordPress or some other CMS, but it is not bad for static web sites. So here we are Continue reading

Project Maelstrom Introduces Serverless Static Websites

Project Maelstrom

It is a matter of common knowledge that for publishing your website online, you need to have access to a web serve that can serve your site’s pages through a domain name. The web server is needed because it always stays online (at least most of them claim to be always online) and can serve your web site non-stop round the clock.

Recently, when my niece managed to damage her inkjet printer, I had to bring it to my place to repair it. The ink cartridges needed to be fixed and I had to connect it to my PC for testing. But that was an open invitation to the driver hell syndrome. I had to uninstall my printer’s driver, reboot Windows, install her printer’s drivers, reboot once again and then I could use her printer in my PC. You have to do this every Continue reading

When you want to change the home page or clear the saved passwords in Google Chrome, you have to open the Chrome Settings to make all these and other modifications and customize your Chrome browser for your needs. But when you open the Chrome Settings, it opens in a new tab in the same window. It could become a little confusing to fin the settings if you have already opened many web sites in different tabs.
