MeowBit is Free Software that allows you to effortlessly view Dot-Bit websites ANYWHERE ON YOUR WINDOWS COMPUTER. Any browser. e-mail. FTP. Instant messenger. Any program.
Dot-Bit is a new top-level domain that is NOT controlled by any government or corporation.
You can register a Dot-Bit domain today using the inexpensive cryptocurrency, Namecoin. (A derivative of BitCoin.)
Dot-Bit domains cost only a few pennies to register, and you don’t have to go through anyone else to do it.
Dot-Bit domains are extremely resistant to being shut down or hijacked by governments, corporations or criminals. Dot-Bit domains are THE decentralized alternative to building your whole web presence on a Dot-Com or other top-level domain that can be shut down at any time for any reason by any government without due process.
Using Dot-Bit with MeowBit is also resistant to DNS or HTTPS hijacking, which is common and easy with normal top-level domains. Hijacking is when someone redirects your traffic to an imposter website, which allows them to steal passwords or install malware.
Dot-Bit domains propagate worldwide quickly, so new Dot-Bit websites show up within three hours for everyone, rather than in 24-72 hours like with other domains.
Dot-Bit websites are easy to create and configure, and we’ve written tutorials on how to do that.

What can owners of Apple products (and other non-PC hardware and software) do to access these dot-bit tools, sites, and features? Any resources for us?
Our programmer is a Windows guy only. And we don’t have money to hire a Mac programmer. Contact Jeremy Rand at FreeSpeechMe.org, he said he could get FreeSpeechMe up and running for Mac when he finds time. FreeSpeechMe is a plugin for Firefox only, not system-wide, but I think that’s your best bet.
You could also buy a 50 dollar beater used PC on eBay to run Windows programs. I have one of those for running Linux stuff.
Thank you. (The cheap pc seems like the best option for those of us without the resources to hire a programmer.) Comment: The sooner someone can do that (get it on apple machines) the faster this idea can spread. Thanks again. p.s. Just heard you on SchoolSucks podcast. Great work!
