Send large size files with Fileai – Uploading file to server not Required

| More

Sending large files via email is a real pain. You cannot send very large directly as an email attachment. You first need to upload the file on free file hosting service and then provide the link to the recipient to download it.

fileai.com is a free web site that allow you to send large files that cannot be easily sent via e-mail. The brighter side of the application is that neither you need not to download or install any software nor you need to upload the files to any server. The files are sent directly, peer-to-peer, through your existing web browser. In layman terms, the file can be copied directly from your computer, similarly like BitTorrent.

 

 

 

In BitTorrent Protocol, when someone is sending the same files to multiple people, they are able to transfer directly with one another, resulting in faster download speeds for the downloaders, and reduced upload bandwith usage for the uploader.

 

It works on web browser like Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari. Make sure your computer have a recent version of Java installed.

 

How does fileai.com work?

fileai.com works by running a Java Applet in your web browser. It automatically connects you to the people that you want to transfer files with. Leave your browser window open while running the Java Applet so that you can connect and transfer files with people using fileai.com.
