Images Display Faster Too

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Hey all,

The same updates that fired up (pun intended) your download links have also been applied to the image servers. All images hosted on MediaFire should now display nearly instantaneously making your galleries, embedded images, and direct image-links all much more snappy.

Here’s a few sample images hosted in my account:

Unlimited Free Image and File Hosting at MediaFire

Admittedly, I’m not the best photographer out there, but hopefully this gives you a small taste of the speed with which we are now able to serve images as well as files.

Downloads Now Launch Even Faster

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Hi everyone,

We just rolled out a big update today and your downloads should launch faster than ever. The update involves the systems behind the scenes that handle your download requests. ┬áIt’s transparent to the user except for the extra short time between clicking the link and your file downloading.

So what does this mean for you? Well for one it just makes downloading files that much faster and easier, but it also applies to files you stream or direct link with your MediaPro account – allowing them to start streaming even more quickly than before.

So that you can give it a try, I uploaded a few of the latest and greatest web browsers, just choose the one for your operating system to get a taste of the download speeds. If you haven’t tried these or you happen to still be running an older one, you can even install one of these highly recommended browsers to see if you like it.
