Sendoid is a file sharing client designed to shuttle files quickly between browsers and desktops with little need for configuration or firewall tweaking.

The web-based interface allows you to send files up to 1GB in size just by sharing a link with the person you want to share the files with. If you need a more flexible solution that allows for larger files and password protection you can download the free Adobe Air-based desktop client. The Sendoid servers merely facilitate the connection between you and the file recipient, all file transfer is conducted between the two browsers or your Sendoid client and their browser.

Hit up the link below to take it for a test drive or grab a copy of the desktop client for an easier to manage file sharing experience.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    How exactly does this differ from sites likes files over miles and all the other browser file sending sites, addons etc.?

    Hey, Jon I can’t speak for FilesOverMiles, but almost every file sender I’ve seen seems to require that you store your file on their servers, and rely on their speeds in transfer.

    I assume the upload and download of the files would come out of your ISP quota?

    For files on a windows network I use Microsft’s own Rich Copy. It hasn’t balked at any file size I’ve tried including multi-gigabyte files. It even picks up from where it left off in the event of a transmission interruption. And it’s as fast as your network. For stuff outside the network either FTP or a private bittorrent.
