The extension allowed building a social network and sharing files on a P2P basis. It used a darknet style of peer-to-peer communication; files and information shared between users are only accessible as long as the users have each other on their respective access lists - their 'trusted private network'. AllPeers beta version was launched on August 24, 2006. It worked on Windows, Linux and Mac, which, once downloaded, becomes a toolbar in Mozilla Firefox.
Although the AllPeers client was open sourced in March 2007, the server source remains closed. AllPeers claimed this was because the network must have a single, stable server instance to function reliably.
