BitTorrent has announced that Maelstrom, its secure and decentralized web browser project, has been released in its very first alpha test version. Available exclusively by invitation, the test version is not necessarily stable.

For the time being, BitTorrent has not shared details on the technical characteristics or functions of the new browser, which is geared towards data confidentiality, enhanced security and optimal download management. In the long term, the company sees the project as part of its wider goal to foster 'an internet powered by people, one that lowers barriers and denies gatekeepers their grip on our future.'
