I wrote up a short retrospective on some of the things we built at Cliqz over the last few years:
I made my first firefox extension!
It adds a handy button to your toolbar for surfing sites on the #merveilles webring.
You can install it from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/merveilles-webring-surfer/
and you can read the source here: https://github.com/aadilayub/webring-extension
New post on how you can install dat:// and hyper:// support in Firefox Developer Edition and Nightly:
holy shit! Cabal got accepted to Mozilla's Fix The Internet Lab!!!
Made a new PoC today: Running a #dat hyperdrive in a web worker, and discovery-swarm-webrtc in the non-worker. Then pipe peer connections between the two for replication.
One use-case would be using a hyperdrive in a ServiceWorker, and being able to replicate whenever a web page is opened.
The other, I may reveal later...
#cliqz browser just released experimental #dat support: https://0x65.dev/blog/2020-03-02/implementing-the-dat-protocol-in-cliqz.html

New #dat tool: dat-seeder
It's a CLI tool for seeding multiple dats from your device efficiently.
