An Indian technology firm has unveiled details of what it claims is a virus and spam-free "internet alternative".
NetAlter Software said that it has patented a "true P2P" system that offers a domain-less alternative to the web and the internet.
The company said that the NetAlter system will "offer a secure, trusted, spam-free and virus-free software and network for end users and businesses".
The NetAlter Service Browser will be made available free to end users worldwide, enabling them to connect, communicate and share with other users from their PCs via a P2P network.
"Users will no longer have to worry about their personal and financial information being hacked or misused as the NetAlter browser will not allow unauthorised programs to run and will protect the intellectual property of creators of content and applications," NetAlter claimed.
The network will also provide features such as email, file sharing, information sharing and messaging, as well as allowing the creation of personal and business networks.
"Wherever you are, by simply installing the NetAlter browser on your PC, you can publish content across the network without registering a domain name or hosting a web server," NetAlter added.
The system will also provide a collaborative platform for developers and service providers to share code or content and do business in the network.
