AllPeers is a file-sharing tool that runs right in your browser. Once installed, users get a buddy list pane in Firefox. It's very easy to kick off file transfers to people on the list: you just drag files or links from your file window or from inside your browser.
The file-transfer technology inside AllPeers is BitTorrent, which means your files aren't uploaded to any central service; it also means that if you're sharing a file with a group of people, the bandwidth to transfer the file will be shared by all, potentially speeding up transfers.
