IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem. It combines good ideas from Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the web. It is like a single bittorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built in. You can also mount the world at /ipfs.IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP.
IPFS is also a platform with 8 apps listed on AlternativeTo. Browse all 8 apps for IPFS.

It's how the web should have been built, decentralized and thus not dependent on a client-server model, with each file having its own unique address so it can survive and be easily located or archived even if the original web site is lone gone.
That is a great project!
