How it Works

pool.limo is a completely client-side gateway. This means that when you request a site (ex. name.pool.limo), pool.limo serves your browser a micro-app that resolves the page content and caches it locally.

The entire process runs in your browser, which increases censorship resistance and provides the user with a privacy-respecting browsing experience.

The following is a flow chart of how the client app works:
