"We know there are several cloud sharing solutions out there, but as a continuation of our mission to bring you more private and safer choices, you can trust that your information is safe with Send", Nick Nguyen, Mozilla's VP of Firefox Product, said today. Send allows you to send up to 1GB of encrypted data directly to another person by simply dragging and dropping files onto the page. At the time, users were limited to sending files up to 1 GB and the created link to the file would "expire" after 1 download or 24 hours (whichever comes first).

Firefox Send is handy for those moments when you need to share video, audio or photo files that can be too big to squeeze into an email attachment. Called Firefox Send, the platform originally launched in 2017 as an experimental service under Firefox Test Pilot. It also offers security controls that you can set. For those seeking extra privacy, shared files can also be locked with a passphrase.

After you click the "Select files to upload button", you pick the file you want to send from your local machine. However, as with all file-sharing services, the easier the share, the more likely it will be used for casually passing copyrighted materials.

Google already showed off the service running Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey during a public test late past year . Project Yeti , as we noted last month , is the codename for the hardware that would run the game streaming service.

The impermanence of the files is part of the security and privacy pitch as well, and Mozilla says this is something that differentiates Firefox Send from Dropbox, iCloud, OneDrive, or Google Drive. The recipient doesn't need a Firefox account to access your file.

Firefox Send is touted as an ideal way to share files with co-workers, and thus take the strain of company internet servers.
