We just added another darknet to our index – I2P. It is substantially smaller in terms of hosted sites than its bigger fellow Tor. To connect via I2P you’d normally have to download their I2P router which provides an HTTP proxy in order to visit “.i2p” domains (called “eepsites”) from the browser.

Any dangerous HTML tags (and others) are removed, so it is always safe to view.
We just released an important feature: Alerts via email. You can get now automatically notified daily, weekly or monthly if there are new search results. The alert feature is free for everyone – just sign up here https://intelx.io/signup and then go to the Alert tab under Account. You can preview the alert and see how it
