To share a large file with other people we have a lot of options available. From WeTransfer to Dropbox, Google Drive through, could have dozens, but most of them require a central server: a user uploads a file and another user down the server in question.
To prevent this from happening would need to opt for a solution that connects the two computers so that content without being saved in the middle of the road is transmitted and today a solution is brought by Takeafile.
Steps to transfer a file to from source to destination:
- The user drags a file to send to the website and wait a few seconds to generate a URL.
- Send this URL to someone else.
- The receiver opens the URL in a browser and transfer starts (both users have to keep open the browser until the transfer end).
By WebRTC technology currently supported on Chrome and Firefox browsers the source machine and the target machine communicate directly without using an intermediate server. Thus anonymity is absolute and never the file resides anywhere else other than the teams of the two users.
If the transfer is made from the same network, the transfer is extremely fast, so you can replace file sharing via shared directories.
