Overview

FilePizza enables fast and private peer-to-peer file transfers in your web browser.I like how we've had the Internet for decades, yet sending files is something early adopters are still figuring out how to do

By using WebRTC, FilePizza eliminates the initial upload traditionally required when sharing files via file sharing services (e.g. Dropbox). Instead of transmitting files through an intermediary server, the sender initializes a transfer and receives a "tempalink" they can distribute. When recipients click on this link, they connect directly to the sender’s browser to complete the download. Because the file never touches the server, the transfer is fast, private, and secure. For larger files, this is an especially big deal.

A hosted instance of FilePizza is available at file.pizza.

FAQ

Where are my files sent? Your files never touch our server. Instead, they are sent directly from the uploader's browser to the downloader's browser using WebTorrent and WebRTC. This requires that the uploader leave their browser window open until the transfer is complete.

Can multiple people download my file at once? Yes! Just send them your tempalink.

How big can my files be? Chrome has issues supporting files >500 MB. Firefox does not have any issues with large files, however.

What happens when I close my browser? The tempalink is invalidated. If a downloader has completed the transfer, that downloader will continue to seed to incomplete downloaders, but no new downloads may be initiated.

Are my files encrypted? Yes, all WebRTC communications are automatically encrypted using public-key cryptography.

My files are sending slowly! Transfer speed is dependent on your network connection.
