Introduction and Initial Impressions
MEGA. MEGA is the result of Megaupload being taken away from the Internet, under some controversial terms by the US government. Founder of Megaupload, Kim Dotcom, has been through some crazy times, having his house raided by authorities and his business torn apart. He vowed to come back, bigger, better - and more mega than ever, which brings us to today - a walkthrough of his latest creation - MEGA.
MEGA is a cloud storage site built on security and confidentiality. Most think this is for the users, but there is more security built into the backend to protect MEGA and it's financiers from prosecution, more so than protecting users' privacy. We'll get to that soon.
Myself, and many others, had issues trying to visit the MEGA website, but if you use https, you'll be fine. So to visit MEGA, you'll need to type in https://mega.co.nz and it'll be smooth sailing from there. The first thing you'll be greeted with when visiting MEGA is the splash screen and the well thought-out and beautiful user interface (UI).
MEGA's UI is simple, effective and to the point. It's great to look at, and easy to use. Right now it's only capable of being used from a browser, with no mobile apps making cloud storage from your multiple smart devices easy. This is one of the downfalls of the site, something that is hopefully fixed in the future.
MEGA comes with 50GB of cloud storage for free - nothing to sneeze at whatsoever. There are options to purchase, but today we'll just be going through the free version and going for a test spin.
