Looks very interesting, although pretty useless at the moment due to the lack of people on it. Hopefully it will get better

Not sure it will amount to much.  I hope it does but as you say, it needs a following to draw the crowd.





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Anyone know what would happen (legally) if you are running Tor (or this Tor like app) and your internet connection is the exit point used to get to illegal sites ?

Say you run the app, and your neighbour runs the app as well and he's really keen on the dodgy stuff, so he goes all "anonymous" with Tor to find what he likes and it happens that it's your internet connection his request eventually pops out of ... if the police/authorities/NSA/KGB are hunting they are going to knock on your door first aren't they ?

 If a lot of Tribler users turn out to be sharing and caring, the speed will be sufficient for a nice downloading experience,”

Unfortunately the one thing you can count on is users not being open sharing and caring, will be interesting to see what happens with this though. They kind of need a way to guarantee some decent bandwidth from the word go though otherwise people will use it, find it slow and drop it without it ever gaining enough critical mass to be good.
Bah, bring on cheap, legal VOD services, they are finally starting to be good with lightbox and soon netflix coming.

Tribler doesnt use exit nodes, everything is done inside the 'darknet'

Tor however, maybe. They have some info here: https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tips-running-exit-node-minimal-harassment
