Update: Open ID Login (Facebook, Google, Yahoo)

On Friday afternoon, we updated TransferBigFiles with an enhancement that we think you'll love. We've now made it easier than ever to Signup for or Login to TransferBigFiles using an account from Facebook, Google, or Yahoo.  

The update also includes a few other enhancements under the hood. You'll find that transfers (especially those with lots of files) will be noticeably faster using the desktop clients. Downloads will also start faster than before and overall reliability and stability have been improved too.

TransferBigFiles Passes 250,000 Users! passes 250,000 user milestoneNot much to report in this blog post, except that this week, we passed the 250,000 user milestone. That's 250 thousand registered users! It's hard to believe because more than 80% of the transfers that go through the TransferBigFiles service are by anonymous users which have been millions over the years.

Thanks to everyone who has made this milestone possible. Next stop, 1 Million registered users.
