Following the close of Megaupload, Kim Schmitz the founder, decided to launch Mega, a similar service that was shut down by the Justice Department of the United States. Thus the January 19, 2013 Mega born to continue allowing users to share files between them.
Mega is still in beta stage and that is why there are some limitations in their service but the team is handling Schmitz resolve incidents as quickly as possible.
Unlike other services, Mega has no size limit to upload a file which is a great advantage for people who want to share large files. Also available to users 50 GB of storage absolutely free to exchange files between users. That’s not all, features an encryption security system to ensure the privacy of the message.
While offering many advantages over its predecessor, Mega does not have a desktop application or mobile devices. They also have trouble getting the service to be used in other browsers other than Chrome as just being optimized. Another limitation is that it has a system to unsubscribe. To that end users should e-mail and perform this action manually.
I mentioned in the previous paragraph leads many to distrust Mega users since the closure of Megaupload lost access to the files they had. Although there that background, the platform has indicated that in the near future, seeks to provide the ability to create groups to share files privately and implement key platforms for Mega Megabox and videos and movies and Internet advertising respectively. Latter based on sites that had at Megaupload.
While it is true that distrust is felt, you commented that within 24 hours of being released Mega already had a million registered users.
