The Mozilla Foundation has officially released its Firefox Send file-sharing service, after nearly two years of product testing.
The Firefox Send website allows users to send files (via a link that automatically expires) to anyone around the world, avoiding email systems whose servers often have restrictions on the sizes of files they can send.
Receipts using any modern browser can click on the link and download the file, which makes it ideal for families or businesses spread out around the world, who wish to share data such as photos or documents, with each other.
The release of Firefox Send was revealed in a Mozilla blog post, in which the Foundation touted its commitment to the end-user privacy and security.
Firefox Send was actually a Test Pilot experiment that Mozilla had been developing since August 2017.
“Send is a free encrypted file transfer service that allows users to safely and simply share files from any browser,” wrote Mozilla.
