In the discussion is to support the p2p search engine yacy.net
which has one big demo-portal: http://www.yacysearch.com
and each supports can find its stats at http://www.yacystats.de
I thougt about emule supporting this movement, which could be done very easily and would bring as well benefits to emule.
Would it be possible to habe in emule a tab with a webrowser?
then the search page and the admin page of yacy could be displayed in emuleīs yacy-tab.
Futhermore the emule-installer could integrate the yacy deamon.
As there is a low latency modus, users then can search the yacy-p2p network for websites and are not dependent on google anymore, as emule is always open and running. And: each emule user could index as well some websites.
The question is only, which browser could be integrated in that emule tab. Is firefox possible with the gui of emule? As there is already a yacy-toobar for firefox anyone can try out.
Then it would be optional to surf as well with the emule web-browser tab or just to use it to search for websites in emule or to just administrate the yacy node.
As these is really easy to implement, emule would have a good benefit to add a website-search engine, and third it would support the wikipedia project, to have a google alternative in a p2p style ofan open source search engine.
Can of one the Emule developers support this built in webbrowser tab with the default adresss "localhost:8080/yacy.htm"
and the addition of the yacy installer in the emule installer? As there are already 262 Mio Websites indexed for yacy, Emule could push this index to 1000 Mio Websites. Google has roundabout 8000 Mio websites.
Can Emule provide this space with an built in webrowsertab? Which browsercode could be used?
