‘Firefox Send’ is a free self-destructing file sharing service

Mozilla has a number of products under their umbrella, but the Firefox team has historically stuck to doing what they do best: working on the browser. This has done them well even though they aren’t the most popular option on the market right now. The company has been working hard on their new rendering engine, but it seems as if they have also been working on a new project as well. The company just announced a new service called Firefox Send which is a free encrypted file transfer service that lets you set how many times it is allowed to be downloaded before it is deleted.

This is interesting because ephemeral messaging (popularized by Snapchat) has become quite mainstream over the years. This is another take on that basic idea of putting something online but making sure it goes away after a set number of units. For ephemeral messaging it is a set amount of time (or views), while Firefox Send from Mozilla is a file sharing service with a set number of downloads. This is great for those times when you need to send an important document but want to make sure it gets destroyed after it has been downloaded by the recipient.
