    MediaFire that is, MF is just the best filesharing site for free users, IMO. Another good one isMegaupload.
    What I don't get is alot of the file sharing communites I frequent choose to use fileserve, fileshare, or even
    the worst: Rapidshare. It is beyond me why they would use it. I guess for a premium user it's good, but MF is
    great even for free users, allowing you to download multiple files at once REALLY fast.

    o you guys have a favorite/good file sharing site for free users?
    Criteria is

    * ease of use
    * lack of captcha
    * speed
    * number of multiple downloads
    * waiting time to downloads
    * waiting time between downloads

    Megaupload=High Files (It has a faster download rate.)
    Mediafire=Small files (No waiting time.)

    Most people use other hosting site because they pay them to use them. There's a link generator that creates links to downloads that gives you Premium without you paying for it.

    Mediafire is my favorite. Gives me awesome speeds (most of the time anyway) when I use the DownThemAll Firefox addon. Megaupload comes in second.

    People use stuff like Fileserve because it generates more money for them compared to other filehosting sites. But I still don't understand why some people still use Rapidshit.

    Most hosting sites used are for the benefits to the uploader not the downloader.

    MediaFire always gives me shitty speeds. I prefer DataFileHost...

    I use Host-A a lot...Mainly because I have been for years, and it's simple to use. You get 50 MB of space, which isn't really a lot, but files don't get deleted, and you can upload any file type.

    For downloading I, like most, prefer MediaFire and MegaUpload. I don't upload so I have no preference there. [​IMG]

    yeah this m720p rip of the matrix at about 2 gigs would have taken forever if I torrented it, but I'm just about done now.[​IMG]

    LOL. It's called getting Skipscreen and THIS addon. OR, Use DL accelerators like DTA! or JDownloader.
