Modern advancements in technology have allowed practically everyone to have a much easier life than before; nowadays, you can communicate with colleagues, friends and family even when they are thousands of miles away, and whatever it is that you would want to share—be it pictures or sound clips or even large, sensitive files, it can be done. And with the applications made available for these media files to be acquired, it is relatively easy for such sharing to be done.
Recently, Mozilla has launched a new file-sharing interface called Send. It is still on a test pilot status, which means that you can already access it and make use of its features, but is still very much on its developmental stage. Developers will still have to determine if they will let this nifty program stick around for good based on clients’ feedback and the program’s running capacity.
Security: Unlike most platforms which allow you the same basic method of uploading your important files in the internet and having anyone download them through the use of a customized link provided by the program itself, Send is a more secure way of doing so. Whatever it is that will be uploaded will soon be deleted after one successful download or after 24 hours, whichever comes first. This assures total security and privacy, and it means that no one else can download the file aside from your intended receiver. It has been claimed that not even the developers can access your data. When you upload them in Send via any modern internet browser (which means that it isn’t just limited to their own product Firefox), the media file will be encrypted, and only the necessary information such as the files’ name, hash and size are revealed to them.
Also, most sharing platforms have limited file size capacity. Send, however, allows you to upload documents of up to 1 GB. Now you won’t have to break down your files in chunks and upload them tediously for a long time just to get everything done and over with.
Transparency: What’s better is that you won’t be blind to the status of your file upload. Once completed, you will be able to see all your previously shared data, and you can have the option of deleting them even prior to the indicated expiration. The files won’t be shown in your page if they have already been deleted. Simple, easy, perfect.
