Kim Dotcom’s MEGA cloud storage service gets a Firefox extension

Kim Dotcom teased it on Twitter a few days ago, and now it’s here: a Firefox add-on for the man’s new MEGA cloud storage service.

The browser extension, which has been ‘preliminary reviewed’ by Firefox maker Mozilla, is billed as ‘secure and invisible’.

Firefox users who are also registered MEGA users are prompted to download and install the add-on as soon as they launch the service.

The browser extension, the dialog box promises, brings “vastly improved download performance” and will allow users to “batch-download an unlimited number of files without any size restrictions”.

MEGA just got a new CEO, open Internet advocate and entrepreneur Vikram Kumar, after a successful launch that saw over 1 million users upload approximately 50 million files so far.

Just last week, the first third-party app for MEGA made its debut, in the form of a file browser and download app for Android.

Dotcom says this is only stage 1 of his master plan, so stay tuned:
