Hey, what’s up. Sending and receiving files is a daily task when using the Internet. Indeed, it is usual to send files, data, emails, and so on. Additionally, sending small files, email and instant messaging clients is a solution. However, when sending large files, then the matter becomes more complicated. This is because the above-mentioned alternatives limit the size of the data to be sent. That’s when you have to look for other options. In this case, we are talking about webwormhole. This is a tool that serves to create an ephemeral tunnel between one computer and another to transfer files. The basis of this app is the web browser. For that reason, today we’ll look at how to send and receive large files through the web browser.

Webwormhole offers direct, fast, free, and unlimited encryption from the browser.

Generally, email clients and courier services have limitations for sending data. These limitations do not affect the sending of basic things, such as photos, documents, or audios. However, when dealing with large files of several gigs, then you have to look for other alternatives. There are certainly some options, such as WeTransfer and Firefox Send. However, the first one limits sending to 2 GB, and in the case of Mozilla’s option, it is limited to 1 GB in size. Furthermore, the sending depends on the servers of these companies. This does not happen with WebWormHole.

How webwormhole works.

The fundamental characteristic of this tool is that it uses WebRTC technology. This allows real-time communication on the web without the need for third party plugins. All modern browsers support WebRTC. Consequently, Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Opera, Brave, and Vivaldi can be used to transfer files. In addition, WebRTC integrates default encryption to secure your communications. On the other hand, the process is very simple. Just go to the website and generate code and link to share files with someone else. From the other computer, the user only has to use the code or link to get to the other side of the tunnel.

Share the URL or code so that the other user is on the other side of the tunnel
Share the URL or code so that the other user is on the other side of the tunnel.

Conclusion

At the end of the day, we have seen how to send and receive large files through the browser. It’s a simple process, and since it doesn’t depend on an intermediate server, then the transfer speed is usually fast. In addition, multiple ascents and descents can be made on each side simultaneously. But the most important thing is that the tunnel closes immediately once you close the browser tab. Very well, I hope you find this post useful. Before saying goodbye, I invite you to see our post about the most recent update of Windows 10. Bye!
