galacteek is a multi-platform Qt5-based browser and semantic agent for the distributed web. It relies on the IPFS peer-to-peer technology.

galacteek uses linked-data based object chains (called OntoloChains) to build and synchronize a global graph of content controlled by the users. Check out the pimp-my-dweb images to try it.
