Mozilla the parent company of the worlds second most popular desktop browser has released a new Free Encrypted File Sharing Service called Firefox Send.

The service offers an alternative to email and cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive for file sharing.

You may have noticed by now sharing larger file attachments with emails is always an issue, Gmail does provide a nice cushion of Google Drive but that consumes your limit of 15 GB free limit that comes with your Gmail account and clutters your drive and is not ideal for one time shares after which you don’t need the file sitting in the drive and not to mention this can be time-consuming when all you need to do is share a single file one time — not store the file, edit it or collaborate with others.

Firefox Send provides a faster better solution.
