If you are looking for a FREE File Sharing Program, then there are many options available today. Just search for “free file sharing websites“and you will find lots of sites, which promise you to be the best. Some are really cool and useful, while some are crap. But Orb24, a newly launched file sharing site, is really worth taking a look at.
Welcome to Orb24
What I like most in Orb24
The best part of Orb24 is its neat organization of different file types. It stores different file types in a neatly organized way, and it is very convenient to find and share these file. Yet another feature, which is lacking in many other file sharing services, is the different file types supported. This free file sharing utility even allows you to convert old video tapes, slides and film prints to DVD and save them on their website. You are given a personal account, which you can access any time to share files online and access them.
They also provide a Search facility on their website, which you can use to search videos over the web and store them at your account. It is not just a FREE file sharing service. But I find it to be a complete backup and online storage solution. It’s got everything email, integrated search bar, conversion, backup, inventory tools, and media galleries.
This is FREE upto 1GB. For an upgraded account of 6GB, you need to shell out some money.
What can you do with Orb24, the free file sharing program
- My Videos: Add video files and share them
- My Photos : Add Image files and share them
- Convert Old Videos to DVD
- Store, Access and edit your personal and business documents.
- Search Internet for videos that interest you and add to your Orb24 Library.
- Search for any Photos, Document or Video within your account
- Use your orb24 Email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) to send and receive emails from friends and family.
- Upload MP3 files and enjoy your music playing while using Orb24.
- Keep a record of your current and past medications and medical history
This is really cool. Use orb24, the best file sharing program, well almost.

Instant messaging (IM) and chat are technologies that facilitate near real-time text-based communication between two or more participants over a network. Windows Live Messenger is the most popular IM client today with 294 million active worldwide.
Language plays a major role in any form of communication and Instant Message Language is an important factor behind the popularity of an IM client. This is the reason why QQ, used mostly in China, is probably the largest used Instant Messaging Client in the World, but most of us do not know about it.
But I just discovered a new Web 2.0 startup, which breaks the Instant Message Language Barriers and allows you to receive Instant Message in your preferred language.
Welcome to MeGlobe
The free web client of MeGlobe lets you type in your own language, but sends a translated version, in real time, specific to the native tongue of whomever you are chatting with. Use of MeGobe is super easy, no downloads are required, you don’t need to install anything. Just register with them and start using this Instant Message Translation service.
But where is the Web 2.0 part here ?
It is interesting. They have made this IM language converter user driven. They acknowledge that it is very difficult every time to correctly translate the emotions with a machine. And so they have built in a feature, which allows you to edit the translation. These IM language edits are remembered by MeGlobe, thus making it better and better.
These contributions are used to teach MeGlobe™ to become a better translator. Every correction from the community brings us closer to our goal of erasing the borders of language. Creating a universal translator has huge potential, but requires lots of work. By no means has it been perfected, but with your help we’re getting better every day.

As a webmaster, I often need to change the layout and designs of my blog so as to keep it interesting and easily accessible to my visitors. But howsoever care you take, there are always chances, that what your visitors see is not exactly what you are aiming at.
The reason being different people use different browsers, and although following one common language, are sometimes not able to exactly decipher the language, and hence organize the data in a different manner. Thus it is always possible that what you are seeing is not exactly same as what I am seeing, although we both may be on the same web page.
So, as a webmaster, it is extremely important for me, to test my website in
all most of the browsers available. So here comes the nest question.
How to test your web design in different browsers
One way is to load different browsers. Well it is technically possible, but it is not practical. I have four Browsers, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera, but there are virtually hundreds more. What to do then.
Welcome to Browsershot.org.
It is a useful web tool, where you just have to enter the URL of a website, and it will give screenshot of that URL in as many as 60 (YES 60) popular browsers.
Yes, it is a powerful web tool.

Online File Sharing of large files is a thriving business these days. This segment is getting hotter and hotter these days with more and more companies getting their feet wet.
One such file sharing service, which I have been using, is Pando.
Pando is free P2P software that makes downloading, streaming and sharing of large media files fast. It allows you to share files upto size of 1GB FREE (pro version allows 2GB). You can also publish these files, photos, videos or audios to any web site. No registration is required and you can use your existing email. And the best part is that you don’t have to be online when recipients download.
There are lots of reviews of Pando on the web. One thing, which bother me about Pando is the Ads, coming with their FREE version. No, I accept their need to generate revenue, but the kind of ads – I mean those smileys, making different noises when you keep mouse over them, is just irritating.
Besides Pando, there are lots other services, which you can use for large file sharing. They have their own pros and cons. Some of them are mentioned below.
- Box.net: Provides direct links to files. So you are not required to go to a landing page to get their download. Although they allow you to share files upto 1GB, but their FREE account allows only 10MB.
- Drop.io: [See my review on Techie-Buzz.com] Offers built in previews. A simple and impressive interface. Doesn’t require any registration. Newly added features include free sending and receiving of faxes and voice recording. The free account has a 100MB storage limit.
- Foldershare: [See my review here] Although it is primarily a File-synch utility from Microsoft, but it can easily be used as a file sharing service. Simple and easy to use.
- File Dropper: Only two steps to using File Dropper, upload your file and share the URL. But not as feature rich as Drop.io. You cannot edit your files and you cannot allow others to add files or notes to your URL. But they allow you 5GB, capacity.
- FileMail: Allows upto 2GB. No need for any registration.Facility of multiple file uploads. You can send URL from the same interface to the recipients email.
- Windows Live SkyDrive: A service from Microsoft, huge 5GB of free storage space. It works on a folder-based system, and you can categorize the files in different folders like personal, shared, and public folders. But you need to have a WIndows Live ID in order to use SkyDrive.
