Re: [freenet-support] Freenet 0.7.5 build 1336

2011-01-28 Thread Phillip Hutchings

 I was referring to Freenet's custom congestion control. There is no
 resending of UDP packets, unless Freenet pro-actively resends it.
 
 Right, and what we do is we resend packets if they are not acknowledged after 
 a few round trips. Which is pretty much what TCP does.

I'm not entirely sure how Freenet does it, but it doesn't sound quite the same 
as TCP.

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert on TCP

In TCP congestion control is handled by the window size, the exponential 
backoff algorithm and estimated round-trip time.

The window size controls how many bytes can by 'in-flight', that is sent 
without an ACK received. This is advertised by the receiver as part of the 
handshake.

If an ACK isn't received after a given delay the packet is resent and the 
window is decreased, say by a power of two. When the ACKs are received in a 
timely fashion the window size is increased linearly. This stabilises the 
transmission rate fairly well.

TCP is more complex than this brief summary, as it also implements a slow-start 
algorithm and makes an effort to avoid hitting backoff by the linear increase.

It doesn't matter if you only read X packets a second, they've still been sent 
to you so it still used bandwidth. If you don't read UDP all that happens is 
your OS queues for a while the starts dropping packets. Unlike TCP, UDP doesn't 
implement speed controls. To control UDP you have to implement your own 
feedback and control system on the sender. To compound that freenet has to 
allocate its bandwidth over multiple senders, and it can't just to an even 
split as not all senders are equal.

 Exactly. Why isn't this being done?

Why isn't what being done? There's absolutely no point letting the OS drop the 
packets. They have already been transmitted, they're in the receiver's memory. 
Dropping the packets is just wasting time and resources, you have to stop them 
before they're transmitted.

Re: [freenet-support] Freenet 0.7.5 build 1334

2011-01-21 Thread Phillip Hutchings
 So, the question then becomes, when the node is clearly receiving more
 packets than it's supposed to, why is it taking so long (many minutes
 -- I never actually waited to see if the flood, which consumed my
 entire connection's 80KiB/sec capacity, would eventually subside) for
 the rate to stabilize? How much time does the node give it's peers to
 stabilize their traffic, before it disconnects from them? And does the
 node accept packets from peers it is not currently connected to? (Ie.
 say we give our peers 1minute to get their s*** straight, and then
 disconnect from them, I should see the flood end in 1 minute?)

Mostly because development capability is limited by available people and 
testing capabilities - without a dedicated lab setup it's very hard to test 
bandwidth limiting, so the only real test is on the network.

I'm sure fixing this is on the list somewhere, but we either need to pitch in 
and code it or wait for someone else to have time.

That means either the Freenet process isn't running, or hasn't  
finished starting up yet. Unfortunately there isn't a real OS X GUI  
yet. Try this:

Open Terminal, type these commands:
cd path/to/freenet
./run.sh stop

 Are you saying that hosts are required to support MTUs of at least 576

Hrm. Dialup. The MTU includes the PPP header is max. 30 bytes, IP
header can be a maximum of 60 bytes and UDP is a further 8 bytes..
That's 98 bytes of header, leaving 158 bytes of data. So the header is
38% of the packet? That sounds absurd... Of course, PPP can use header
compression on the PPP and IP headers, leaving the PPP header at ~4
bytes and IP at ~20, leading to a 38 byte header (14%), but it's still
a small packet, considering that an uncompressed header set over an
ethernet (1500) MTU is 6%.

On Windows the lowest possible MTU is apparently
(http://techrepublic.com.com/5100-6268-1061241.html) 68 bytes, but
that's absurd. Since you're supposed to send 576 byte packets anyway
if PMTU discovery doesn't work then I'd go for that figure. If things
start dropping, or more likely the client's ISP starts sending
must-fragment ICMP packets, then throttle back.

Of course, if the computer you're trying to connect from has a
stupidly low MTU, AND a stupid firewall that blocks incoming ICMP then
the user really deserves what they're getting. I've been known to be
particularly unpleasent to individuals who think blocking an essential
control protcol is a good idea.

 First thing: on the freenetpage is (or at least was) talk about a minimum
 integrationperiod of a copple of hours; as an addition (at least on the

 have been running my node for about 28 hours now, though not non-stop with a
 period of 18 hours and one of about 10. (I doubt most newbies can afford to
 let their node run nonstop neither). By that token, my node should at least
 be 'reasonably' integrated.

My node has been active for about a week. Before that it was active
for about 3 months, then the machine got rebooted.

 My openconnections are:
 
   Connections open (Inbound/Outbound/Limit) 41 (20/21/200)
   Transfers active (Transmitting/Receiving) 29 (20/9)
   Data waiting to be transferred 3.780 Bytes
   Total amount of data transferred 184 MiB
 
 Note that I do not have fantastic lines/ISPs/HD's/special seednodes etc.; I
 only have an ordinary DSL on an ordinary computer.

That seems a little low. When I ran it on my cable connection
(256/128) it did nearly a gigabyte in 24 hours. I can't check on my
current server because it's set to be a multi user system, so a lot of
the applets are disabled.

I don't have time to do a test with a new node now, but I can load the
front page icons in around 10 minutes. I'm having some connectivity
issues from here to my server at the moment though.

If freenet wasn't such a resource hog I'd run another instance in a
UML parition on that server just to see how quickly it can integrate.
I would estimate 3-5 days based on the last time I started a new node.

In my time watching this list, which is well over a year now, I don't
actually recall you making a valid contribution to the project. I do
tend to read your emails, though it can be a struggle at times, and
all I normally see is this:
* Freenet's too slow
* I don't like person (frequently Ian)
* Whine whine whine

Now, personally I don't find Freenet slow. That may be because my node
is sitting on a basically unmetered 10Mbps half duplex connection, but
it may not. I take the goals of the project in to consideration, and
waiting 2-3 minutes for a text document to download isn't that bad.

Now, if only Java was less resource intensive... If I could run
Freenet in 128MB of RAM sucessfully the other users of the machine
would be happy. As it is, it takes 160MB, which isn't too bad.

 Well, phillip, see my other post for your remarks, but I would wanna say
 specifically one thing:

 Isn't true. I NEVER contend it's the person, as individual, that I dislike,
 I dislike the actions and decisions a person takes, because it leads, and
 has lead, to a virtual standstill in end-user usuability. Now, even that on
 itself isn't that bad, because people make mistakes, but when one continues
 for two years, it does become a question of when it is going to sink in that
 maybe there is need to change things.

Well, I will give you that. We can't all agree all the time. But I
would say pointing to resources supporting your viewpoint would give
posts a better feel. Not that this is always possible.

 Your defence of it being fast, is just the sort of non-reality check I'm
 pointing at. Dude, how many people do you think have the ability of getting
 a connection like that? It's not realistic to extrapolate your situation to
 others, which are in a vast majority WAY less equiped and experience enough
 problems just getting it running (see posts of noobs on slashdot or even on
 the maillists).

Yeah, I wish I had that connection to my home. I have to live with
256/128 cable. When I ran freenet on that it wasn't too bad, but I
have a bandwidth cap.

 Maybe you haven't been hanging around long enough to remember, but I was one
 of the first people that suggested a  new testnetwork which could seriously
 help in the development time in pinpointing problems...and yes, I've said
 that several times, so you can call that whining, if you want, but it IS in
 fact, a suggestion and an alternative - which some selectively remembering
 dudes claim I never do or did - and a good one at that, because there was a
 time we (at least Toad) agreed to it too. Do you here about it any longer?
 Well, no, it's been put back in the freezer because it was prefered to play
 with simulations that, as yet, didn't fullfill their promises neither.

Yeah, I do remember. At one point I considered helping hack the
source, but it's just crazy in there. If only the protocol was
documented somewhere so I could follow it through the source.

 Ah man, all this shite about I don't contribute anything valuable is so
 lame.  That what gets incorporated is forgotten (like augmenting the htl a
 year ago), and that what I propose in vain and hasn't been implemented is
 deemed to be mere talk, because it hasn't proven itself. Well, duh.

I've only been on the list for a year though.

 Certainly, I have become increasingly sarcastic, but it shows a lack of
 understanding if you fail to see what is the cause of it. When you entered
 the scene a year ago, when freenet was plunged into it's worst non-working
 period ever, then you might have a sense that it has progressed a lot -
 well, it hasn't. Not in the end-users viewpoint, anyway. Maybe for a coder,
 like toad, things are different: he codes, sees the code change, implements
 new things, so, in his perspective, things have become better...but IMHO,
 that counts for not much, if the enduser can't benefit from it. That's not
 putting a blame on the hard work of Toad, or saying 'I don't like toad',
 as you seem to think, it's just the way it is.

I know the feeling. I'm a web developer, and all the time I spend
speeding up the code in certain conditions is basically moot as far as
the boss is concerned. He's a marketer.

I actually started running a node in the 0.3 days, but I was on
dialup. Now that was horrible. I've been following it on and off since
then, but now I have a fast server it works ;)

 Toad remarked:

 Freenet is DESIGNED to actively thwart attempts to find the authors.
 This is a fundamental design goal. It is a motive. Whereas the postal
 system simply doesn't care one way or the other. In fact, right now,
 Freenet is so slow that only perverts and geeks use it. Or so it would
 be argued.

 This is why the government, and for that matter Hollywood, doesn't give a
 rat's patotsie right now.  Until we get it to work reasonably well, it is
 little threat in the overall scheme of things.

 They'll only start to worry when millions of people are actively using it.
  By then it will be too late...they could shut down SourceForge and exile
 Ian to Tierra del  Fuego and it wouldn't make any difference, because of
 the robust and decentralized design of the network.

Yep. Good isn't it? And even if the main developers are ousted, the
project is open source (I have the tree ;) so someone could fork it and
distribute via freenet. Though establishing trust would be a little
harder...

 In the meantime, even the perverts are getting a little tired of typing in
 parameters, downloading new versions, and rebooting their Unix
 machines

I just ./update.sh, no need for anything else. I am getting tired of the
RAM usage, but until it compiles with cgj then I'm stuck with it. I've got
bandwidth to burn at the moment (100GB/month, outbound.) I'm aiming for
1GB/day of outbound at the moment. Haven't worked out the rate for that
yet, but I will.

I support freedom of speach. And while there's precious little speach on
Freenet as compared to movies and pictures, I think it'll grow. Some time
soon I'll get a freesite up.

You don't. You've just installed Freenet. It takes quite a while for a 
node to integrate itself in to the freenet network, just be patient. 
Leave the node running overnight and you'll get better results. The 
longer you have the node the faster it'll be.

Wow Wayne! What a nightmarish situation. Bandwidth capping? 128/128? 
You
guys need to do some serious political work in order to get rid of that
monopoly. We had a similar situation here (Denmark), but luckily the 
telecom
monopoly was removed in the mid nineties before the internet took off 
for
real.

Btw. cant you get internet feed from cable- and/or 
electricity-companies as
well? That would create some competition.
There is no legal monopoly in New Zealand. The marketplace is 
completely deregulated. There are no legal entry barriers to the market 
place and very few barriers to become a network operator (benefits like 
compulsory land access, instant fines for cable breakage...). The 
monopoly is because of the population distribution - nobody other than 
Telecom is willing to have wires to most of the population, it costs a 
lot for little return. The only reason Telecom will put up with it is 
because the wires were put in place by the government.

That said, there's a group of students (including myself ;) at Victoria 
University who're planning to roll out a large scale IP network based 
on Cat-5e cable and Power over Ethernet. We've already solved most of 
the problems ;) Visit http://www.nzwired.net/ if you're interested. The 
company will be non-profit.

Re: [freenet-support] Re: Freenet Expectations]

2004-07-14 Thread Phillip Hutchings

Different views on what's realistic? Will Freenet just be a US or bandwidth
rich countries project? The government in New Zealand has decided that 
256/256 is the highest broadband speed that our telecom monomoply needs to 
make available to competitors. :-(

128/128 is the fastest connection available domestically without
a monthly bandwidth cap that Freenet would blow out of the water in 5 days.
There aren't any business level connections that wouldn't be prohibitively
expensive. Which leaves academia (and even per department most would frown on
Freenet).
Ok I appreciate we're just in a sucky part of the world. I get the impression
others are too. But when I read:
 

[snip]
I'm amazed that the above still works...
***
and you're amazed that 256/128 works (if I'm reading it correctly) then that
leaves me out of the cold, and you're suggesting bandwidth needs to be
at least 1024/256 for you to expect Freenet to work.
 

Freenet works fine on  256/128, but it chews through bandwidth.
What I was thinking of doing was getting a server in a US on a fairly 
decent connection and running a Freenet node on that. People would be 
able to get secure tunnels in to the server to the FCP port (and maybe 
Fred - but I'd prefer FCP only). At the moment I'm looking at a ValueWeb 
offering - US$65/month in the config I want (some friends also want 
shells on the box - it'll be running UML).

The only problem I have is money. Oh, and RAM - it won't have free reign 
over the box. 128MB max, closer to 50MB in reality - not ideal.

If only Java worked in less RAM, or Freenet worked with less data 
transfer. I can only allow ~1GB/Month on my connection. Roll on NZWired 
(nzwired.net)

I installed from Portage, and I was

I especially liked the pre-made init script...
 

Yes, it works really well. And the default Blackdown JAVA-install works
right out of the box too, eliminating the need for messing aroud with SUN
JRE. I've had Freenet running on several distros, but Gentoo is definitely
the easiest one to work with.
   

Blackdown works well with Freenet? I heard one bad report...
 

I had a few crashes and then switched to Sun's JDK. Other than that, 
Blackdown was fine :P

Kudos to the people who integrated Freenet into the Portage tree. Those guys
did a very fine job.

   

How did you know to change the paths to /var/freenet and so on?
 

In the ebuild you can see where it wants everything to go
Cat /usr/portage/net-p2p/freenet/freenet-0.5.2.1-r8.ebuild

As much as your bandwidth allows. On a capped 256/128 connection Freenet 
managed to use 1.5GB in a day. Now I have a 10GB cap, not good. Anyway, 
that's the sort of transfer you can expect - lower your

If it was possible to change these limits on the fly it'd be nice.

How long has your node been around? The longer your node's been around 
the faster it is. In the first day Freenet is a dog - the public seed 
nodes are overloaded, you need to wait until your node knows plenty of 
non-public-seed nodes.

Also, what're your firewall settings? Make sure you're allowing 
connections to the appropriate port. Just telnet in to it from a remote 
host, it'll close the connection pretty quickly, but you'll prove you 
can access it.

Freenet works fine with ports forwarded from the firewall, but it
doesn't use uPNP or anything, so you need to manually forward the 
port.
Do any other major apps? Does Apache? Does Kazaa? I honestly don't know
in the latter case, if somebody does know, I'd like to hear from them.
But what I heard was that UPNP was only slightly standardized and 
you'll
end up writing custom code for every router...
The only apps that I am aware of using uPNP are MSN Messenger and 
Apple's iChat. It's standardised (see libupnp and the linuxigd projects 
- the latter uses libupnp to provide a WindowsXP like firewall control 
thing, it actually works, but I don't use it), but not that great - no 
auth or anything.

Freenet works fine with ports forwarded from the firewall, but it

You do need to keep the port number the same between the firewall and 
host. I know, I've done it. These days I run it on my firewall machine 
- small network, only that machine stays on 24/7 :P

I am force to make a little program who will modify the freenet.ini 
for changing the IP and unloading and reloading Freenet? I wonder why 
so basic things are not implement in Freenet.
Or use a service such as dyndns.org and put your hostname in your 
freenet.ini. Freenet has routines to check for IP changes (I've 
disabled them - static IP), so it should work pretty well once it's 
established, but before that it needs to announce an IP and port to 
connect to over the network so people start connecting to it.

[freenet-support] averagebandwidthlimit results

2004-05-25 Thread Phillip Hutchings
OK, I enabled an average[input|output]bandwidthlimit of 500. In 5 hours 
I've transferred 400MiB of data, which is still far too high, 
considering that I should be transferring 288MiB each way per day 
(which is also too high).

Anyway, when I'm back on my cable connection (I'm away from my place at 
the moment, dialup :/ I'm accessing my node through an SSH tunnel) I'll 
grab the freenet source from CVS and look at it, see if I can figure it 
out ;)

That's the perfect reason to use Java! It may not be the nicest code,

#ifdef'd code, which is problematic at best. If one code base runs on

Re: [freenet-support] Re: Traffic usage?

2004-05-24 Thread Phillip Hutchings
[snip]
1. My experience is that I can get a limit of 5 Gb of *international* 
traffic a
month (170 Mb a day) with Node bandwidth limits of
Overall 0
Output 750
Input 0

Yup, a limit of 750 bytes per second. I need to experiment more with 
the
Overall setting. Freenet is the single most effective utility I have 
found
for consuming bandwidth. Better than BitTorrent.

When the bandwidth level drops this low I get a lot of what I 
characterise as
churn. The messageSendTimeRequest shoots up - I guess because 
messages can't
get out fast enough through the small output channel. So then my node 
rejects
incoming connections, but it's still sending outgoing requests (albeit 
slowly)
so I'm rejecting these replies to my requests because my 
messageSendTimeRequest
is so high. I suspect a lot of things get retried. I suspect my 
efficiency is
low. But it works, and keeps me in the bandwidth cap.
Yeah, that's what I get when I turn it down really low. Not really 
surprising, maybe freenet should adjust its priorities on a low 
bandwidth connection or something, but I don't know the internals yet

2. I really suspect that more serious bandwidth limiting should be 
done at an
operating system (router) level rather than at the Freenet level. I 
suspect
that's what you'll be told around here. That way you can also take 
account of
things happening other than your node. :-)

So I've been working towards a Linux traffic shaper that gives sets no 
limits
on traffic with domestic IP addresses and limits international traffic 
so the
total monthly limit hits 5 Gb (my cap).
Yeah, I'm looking at it, but there's no decent way to detect freenet 
packets. I was looking at patching the source so you could specify the 
source port range for outgoing connections. If you specified 10 ports 
or so and freenet bound them on startup so they were captured then, and 
used iptables to MARK the packets you could do some really decent 
limiting.

3. What I don't know is how my Freenet node will respond when some 
(domestic)
IPs get a high bandwidth (8,000 k/s) and other (international) IPs get 
a low
bandwidth (0.75 k/s). I guess  my node will always give a constant
recommendation for how much traffic it wants, and this will oscillate 
wildly
according to how many domestic versus international nodes are 
connecting. I'm
*hoping* domestic nodes will learn that it is worthwhile connecting to 
me, but
they may be put off by the average they get. I don't know. Someday 
when Toad is
bored maybe he could put his fine mind to at least thinking about the 
impacts
of this bandwidth disparity and how a node configuration could be set 
to handle
this.

It may be that this scenario ( maix of low and high bandwidth channels 
into a
node) is relatively uncommon worldwide, and isn't worth coding for, 
but I
wonder how common it is, and whether it may become more common.

Comments welcome.
Domestically I am willing to give up to 5k/sec out and 15k/sec in (due 
to my connection speeds), internationally I would go lower but monitor 
the usage. I'd like to cut off after ~100MB/day. I know this is 
sub-optimal for freenet, but with caps that's the reality.

One thing that I can think of is limiting the size of incoming files 
not requested by the node directly - stop splitfiles and things going 
through. I'm more interested in the information, not movies, but I 
can't think of a tidy way to implement this in a few minutes. I know 
it's not really in line with the freenet ideal, and also it could 
compromise privacy, but it's a thought.

So you not only don't want to store large files in your data store -
you don't want to relay them either? It should be easy enough to stop 
such
files being stored in your data store - according to freenet.ini it 
doesn't
store files larger than 1/100th of the size of your datastore, in your
datastore. That 1/100 calculation would be easy to find and tweak so 
you don't
store files of 1 Mb (and these days all the large files I see are in 
chunks of
1,026 Kb). The question is whether you can identify whether incoming 
data is
part of an incoming 1 Mb message bfore you accept it. My guess, only a 
guess,
is yes.

I would think that information as opposed to files would normally be 
under 1
Mb.

For my part I'd like to contribute as much bandwidth to Freenet as a 
whole, but
when in a capped triage situation I certainly understand wanting to 
prioritise
traffic.
I don't care about storing things on my node - I have a 4GB store - but 
I do care about the traffic used by them. When freenet uses over 1/10th 
of my monthly cap in a day it gets shut down.

Personally, I've only seen movies bigger than 1MB, most text pages are 
20-400KB (TFE's index page was ~400KB last time I looked).

[freenet-support] Traffic usage?

2004-05-23 Thread Phillip Hutchings
OK, so the last issue resolved itself. I think that the node doesn't check
for in-progress transfers if the file gets re-requested (ie you forget to
extend your browser timeouts).

However, in 24 hours my node transfered 1.3GB. I guess this is a good sign
that the network is working, but I have a 10GB monthly cap, so this
transfer rate in unsustainable.

What would be nice (in lieu of being able to prefer certain IP ranges - I
get local traffic far cheaper) would be a way to limit monthly transfer,
eg set it so the node can use 5GB/month, and it'll aim for a daily
transfer of about 170MB, but will go over if it needs to. I guess this
would also mean that the size of incoming files would need to be limited.

Unfortunately I can't try to hack this myself just yet, but I have some
free time coming up, so I might look at it then, see if I can find where
to do the limiting. I knew Java knowledge would come in handy :P

So for now my node is offline. I've lowered my rate limiting to 500
bytes/sec to keep things under control, but I'm waiting for my ISPs
traffic information to come back online...

[freenet-support] Limiting outgoing connections to a certain port range...

2004-05-04 Thread Phillip Hutchings
Since I'm unfortunate enough to be on a bandwidth cap I like to monitor 
where my bandwidth is going so I can shut down anything that's guzzling 
loads of bandwidth. I do this through simple IPTABLES rules, as it 
gives a nice breakdown of what's using what.

Unfortunately, as freenet just claims a random port to connect out on, 
I can't do this management. I would like an option to restrict the port 
range bound to if it's possible.

I'm not overly worried about any privacy issues this may cause, I don't 
mind if it's off by default, but if it's possible it would be nice to 
have. If I could figure out where in the source this is done I may be 
able to submit a patch or something...

IPtables can look at which user runs the process owning the 
connection. If
you run freenet as a freenet user then it should be possible to 
separate
these connections from other connections.

Please post you solution if you get it to work.
I checked on that before posting to the list, and the module is only 
valid in the OUTPUT chain. Since Freenet sends data both ways it's not 
much use for this.

Re: [freenet-support] NAT Freenet

2004-04-27 Thread Phillip Hutchings
No, they haven't. Please try running a web server behind a NAT that 
you
can't forward ports on. Or ssh. Or any number of other client/server
protocols.
I was thinking of P2P file transfer protocols. Bittorrent, gnutella, 
fasttrack, etc. Uploading doesn't always work really great, but 
downloading is quite decent. Bittorrent seems to have zero problems 
saturating upstream bandwidth on many torrents that are 100% behind 
NAT. I classified (mentally) freenet as a P2P, but it's more like a 
server-to-server for best performance.
You always get far more responses if you're forwarding the ports. Quite 
simply there is no way for two firewalled users to communicate without 
at least one forwarding ports. All those P2P programs do is restrict 
you to connecting to users who're not hiding behind a NAT device, and 
if they want to download a file from you they send a message via the 
network to open a connection to them.

Sorry. Being online for about 12 hours freenet again succeeded in
overloading an acceptable machine (1.5GHz, 512MB Ram), leaving it
doing nothing but swapping RAM.
I think it's time to take a break. Perhaps I'll check back in a year

I'm still of the opinion that freenet will only spread if people are
able to run it on a small router or in background with no noticeable
impact on performance.
I agree here. My router is a 1.53Ghz Athlon (XP1800+) with 512MB of 
RAM. The CPU isn't taxed, but the memory is. Also, bandwidth is used 
quite readily. I have a quota, and it'd be nice to be able to give 
Freenet a maximum monthly allocation, and have it shut down after 
that's passed the limit. I have no problem donating 2-3GB/month of 
traffic, but it takes 4-5 if I don't watch it, that's with a limit of 
2kb/sec both ways.

It would be nice if anyone with a spare P266 box could fire up freenet 
and just let it sit there.

If I had a second life I would help redoing the whole thing in ocaml or
something like that. But I have the miserable feeling that studying
medicine will keep me busy for the next years. :-( Ok, no more flame
wars ;-)
If I knew the protocol, and knew enough about networking, I'd do a 
Cocoa client. I have no problems with continually changing the 
protocol, I'd just have to participate on the developer mailing list. 
Unfortunately there's no easy place to start from. I guess that's what 
you get with pre-release software.

Another good idea would be a 'freenet browser', something like Gecko or 
WebKit (for OS X) embedded in to a freenet thing, with privacy options 
auto set.

No, it wouldn't.  Gecko is for rendering (and I'd guess that WebKit is
also).  It takes html and renders it.  Freenet currently uses html, and
will probably continue to use it (at least for browsing).
I am quite aware of what WebKit and Gecko do.

It doesn't use http, of course, but adding a freenet://  URL style
wouldn't change things too much, since you need the key first anyway --
it's going to be a long address no matter what.  All that would do is
allow for URLs to be to somewhere other than localhost, which can
already be done (not sure if it has) by the server itself.  This is
better, because it doesn't require modifying a browser, and so far
there's only one server.
Or 192.168.0.1 in my case.

And if you wanted to do such a thing, or the privacy features
auto-set, you would do it as a browser extension -- notice when it's a
freenet url, and don't do things like caching it.  For this, you'd
probably just specify a particular host:port that is a freenet url.
And how many browsers do that? Sure, I'm not sure about writing a 
plugin, since most of the time they can only add processing for 
different MIME types, whereas a different browser using a freenet:// 
protocol could connect through FCP and do things like simplify 
splitfiles, insertions and the like with an interface that normal users 
could use. Sure, there's things such as fiw, but it's not the easiest 
of things to use. Having the whole feature set in one application would 
make it a lot nicer.
