Projects in development


  • In Progress

    Launching this year

    Everyone loves music! Some like rock, some ethnic, some classical. Some listen popular stuff on fm and some are hunting for a rare vinyl. But there is a place where all of the music lovers unite - the General Music! Why? Because we have all of that music! You can search on the most popular file hosting websites and direct links which means you can find (and listen!) virtually any track. And in case it's not yet uploaded to the Internet, we have an Alerts system which you can use to be informed when somebody uploads the song to his website or to the file sharing service. A lot of interesting special features are available for the G-points, which you can easily earn, e.g. just by commenting on the tracks that you liked (and the ones that you didn't), voting for them, composing your playlists, sharing your findings with your friends and other things.

Old Projects


  • Very fast search engine. The emphasis is put on the speed of search and easy to understand interface. But it also has a very special feature - so called "fuzzy search". The search is done using OR operator, thus making it more broad and increasing the chance to find some really rare stuff.

  • It is a playground for the new technologies and our most user-affected website. Here we implement all new features, test them and watch your reaction for them. If the community likes a new feature, we later make it accessible General World-wide. If it receives only a moderate reaction, we let it live here. So give it a go, and tell us what you think - we truly appreciate your opinion.
