Thread: Mega and Firefox 18?

  1. #1

    Default Mega and Firefox 18?

    Is it just me or Mega got married with Google along with it's generally long awaited resurrection?

    When trying to download a file from there on Firefox 18 it pops me the warning message about *strongly* suggesting Chrome (almost like a restricting advertisement). It does offer the "No thanks" option, however the mouse cursor becomes as if in "busy" status all the time and nothing works on the site, no clicks. As though the site but not the browser was crashed...

    Also a pal told me the registering process was kind of racist with other mail accounts other than gmail. Namely, with Hotmail it accepted the register but the confirmation mail never came.

    Any ideas, or is it just me?

    Haven't seen any news of the sort - might just be that the owner likes
    Chrome /a lot/.

    Lots of places don't like hotmail because it tended to be used by
    spammers a lot. Could be that the message from mega got blocked by
    overzealous spam filtering, or they dropped it because they don't like
    hotmail.

    Nor do I, but what I've read, he's trying to do something like Google
    Drive now.

    except he has made it clear that everything on his servers will be
    encrypted so he won't know if his users are using his servers to break
    any laws or steal copyrighted material..

    Yep, that's certainly a part of it.

    Realistically, though, anyone who provides "cloud storage services" is in
    a position similar to him. And the offering he's put together (50 GB of
    free storage) is pretty tempting, even if only as a secured backup
    solution by syncing encrypted files. (Personally, I'd not sync anything
    personally without using my own encryption system layered on top of it).
