My Files Page Refreshed

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

Hi Everyone,

We rolled out a visual update to the My Files page today.  It’s been a while since we made any significant updates to the My Files page simply because it’s been working so well for everyone. As the site develops and grows however we’re making room for new features and improve on the foundation we’ve set.  You’ll notice that the refreshed version is significantly cleaner as we’ve reorganized the placement of basic file information from columns to the right of each file to a less obtrusive list below the name.  In addition to simplifying the appearance of the page, this update will set the foundation for additional functionality and features. It’s the first in a series of updates to the file management system that we’ll be releasing in the coming weeks.  If you haven’t seen the new design, just head over to your My Files page or check out the screenshot below.

Let us know what you think! We’d love to hear your feedback so that we can further improve the file management system as we continue to add additional features.

Google Chrome – works great with MediaFire

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

As I’m sure many of you have heard, Google just launched their new web browser called “Chrome.” After playing around with it a little today, I have to admit, I’m really impressed. Since Chrome is designed explicitly for web applications and contains an entirely new JavaScript engine called “V8″ it’s perfect for rendering your My Files page efficiently – even if you have thousands of files in your account. Not only does it run MediaFire’s dynamic content blazing fast, but it seems to provide a great user experience for browsing the web in general.

Google has given a lot of attention to usability design in Chrome, and while it’s interface may initially seem slightly foreign in it’s typical Google-esc friendly color scheme it’s very easy to quickly begin using without changing your usual browsing habits. It’s worth a try, check it out!

For more information about Chrome including a great (although very lengthy) comic strip, visit Google’s official blog.
