Performance Updates

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

In the past few months the popularity of MediaFire has increased significantly and with it we’ve encountered many performance challenges along the way.  Recently we’ve focused our efforts on significantly optimizing the general performance of all components of the site in order to serve this increased demand as efficiently as possible.  Over the past few days we’ve rolled out several updates that are designed to increase page load speeds, rendering speeds, and generally make the experience of navigating your MediaFire accounts as quick and seamless as possible.  You should notice that pages load faster, most notably on the front page, download pages and on your My Files pages.  On a fast connection pages may already have been loading quickly enough that you might not notice too much of a difference, however in tests we’ve seen page load time cut by more than half on an average internet connection.  Let us know what you think!  There’s more to come too, so stay tuned for further developments in the coming weeks.

Longer File Names

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Just a quick update for today. The file name character limit of 100 characters has been raised by popular demand. MediaFire now supports file names up to 255 characters. Fortunately the new My Files page will also better accommodate those longer file names. As always, please let us know if there are any other changes or additions that you’d like to see on the site and we’ll continue to do our best to fit in the most popular ones.
