We have now 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 the I2P router which provides an HTTP proxy in order to visit “.i2p” domains (called “eepsites”) from the browser. The I2P software is unfortunately written in Java – a big no-no when it comes to security (and also performance).

Any dangerous HTML tags (and others) are removed, so it is always safe to view.
September 2019: Latest Updates We have two new major features to share: the Tree View and the History tabs. 📂 Tree View The Tree View tab shows related items to a search result. It simplifies the process of discovery and adds context to the search results. As for website results, it will show all other
We just released a major update – virtual folders. For some results, there is a new “Tree View” tab. It shows items that are related either because they are part of one container file, or because the original file was too big and was automatically split into multiple files. To put it simple, the Tree
One of the file formats that does not get much attention are “.DS_Store” files, even though they might be of interest in forensic cases when analyzing hard disks or other folders (including ZIP files) from Mac machines. “.DS_Store” is an abbreviation for “Desktop Services Store”. These files are created automatically by Apples “Finder” software (which
