03 Aug Firefox Launches Tool for Sending 1GB of Self-Destructing Data
News last Wednesday reported that Mozilla has launched three new experimental applications, including the Firefox Send feature that enables users to send up to 1GB of data from any browser. The information then deletes itself after it has been downloaded.
Like the current version, the new Send feature also ensures protected file-sharing through encryption. Users can just open Send in their browser and drag files to a box that releases a link with a protected key for sending.
The link is deleted from the server within 24 hours, or after it has been downloaded once. Send was also designed to send at least 2GB of data, but tests have shown that the browser crashes when the load is maximized.
Mozilla is also planning to allow users to download files more than once when the Send application has been finalized.
Aside from Send, the Mozilla Test Pilot program also includes other features like Voice Fill and Notes applications.
