Whenever you email yourself a file or use something like Dropbox to transfer files between devices, your data lives on a server somewhere as an intermediary. If you’d rather cut out the middleman, Takeafile.com uses peer-to-peer technology to transfer files, no plugins required.
Peer-to-peer file sharing services like BitTorrent Sync are great ways to share large files without paying for third-party cloud storage, but they still require you to download software. FilePizza shares files using peer-to-peer right in your browser.
Chrome: Although Chromebooks have limited storage space, they make a great BitTorrent machine since you’re less likely to be affected by malware. JSTorrent is a BitTorrent client that works on any Chromebook.
