FileTea is a simple way to send files among different users.
FileTea functions as a web server. Users can drag files into their
web browser and a URL will be generated for each one. Those URLs can
be sent to other people, who will be able to start downloading the
files immediately.
An HTML5 capable browser is required in order to share the files, but
any HTTP client can download them, including command-line tools such
as curl or wget.
Files are sent through the server, but no data is stored there:
FileTea is only used to route the traffic. This also means that
there's no limit to the size of shared files.
The service is anonymous and does not require user registration.
Since it's completely web-based, it works in networks with proxies,
firewalls, etc., as long as all users can reach the FileTea server.
