With the launch of new Test Pilot experiments, Mozilla Firefox is making a comeback. The new Mozilla tool called Send is a free cross-browser web app that allows you to share self-destructing files of up to 1GB in size. Using this tool, you can now send 1GB data via a safe, private, and encrypted link that will automatically expire to make sure your data does not remain online forever.
The new Mozilla tool encrypts your file as it is uploaded and provides you with a shareable link that can be used to share with your colleagues or friends. You can use any modern browser to try your hands on this tool. All you need to do is simply drop your file here and wait for some time until it uploads. As soon as your file is uploaded, you’ll be able to share it with anyone by sending him/her the link.
While uploading a file, the new Mozilla tool will create a link to pass along to whoever you want. Remember that this shareable link will expire after 1 download or within 24 hours and all sent files will automatically be removed from the Send server.

Mozilla says that the new Send tool is completely private and encrypted on the client side, which means the organization cannot view the file content. It should be noted that Send does not require an add-on and can be used in any modern browser.
You should also know that while using Send, Mozilla receives an encrypted copy of the file you’ve uploaded and the basic info about the file like size and name of the file. The Mozilla web browser does not have the ability to access the content of your encrypted file and only keeps it for the time or number of downloads indicated.
The new Mozilla tool works as advertised with uploads as quick as other options like WeTransfer. It’s a great option when you need to securely share a file without worrying that others may access it with the similar link you hand out. Give it a shot.
