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.

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

Nor do I, but what I’ve read, he’s trying to do something like Google

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).
cloud storage providers should not take the blame. it is only the users of the service who should be probably taken to task.
It is highly debatable though if is share music recorded in 1950’s and I be penalised for breaking some laws. 1950 is is 20th century and this is 21st century.
People should be allowed to do whatever they want with reasonably old stuff O:)
I wouldn’t even have Gramophone records at that point of time(1923).
And the last time we used Gramophone in our house was in the early 90’s. Irony is that i cannot even share any gramophone records converted into digital format.

I don’t disagree, but this isn’t really the place for that discussion
(not a “help” topic).
