Talk about major Web 2.0…I thought we were done with the bright pink, light blue, and dark greys instead of blacks…guess not. But enough of that – on to the meat of the website.

It’s just like mediafire, fileden, rapidshare, etc…but Filedropper is as simple as upload then share…no premium options, no tacky advertisements all over the place…just a simple Web 2.0 app. It has a 5gb upload limit although during some testing I did it took several minutes to upload a small jpeg. This could be due to the fact that it was on Digg last night and the “Digg Effect” has a tendancy to bring webpages to a crawl if not to a complete halt.

The competition is out there already so I’m not sure about the impact that a website like Filedropper will have on what’s already out there…my guess is hardly any at all…seeing as how some sites like let you sign up and store up to 50gb online.

You should also note that while every file hosting website I’ve seen has a disclaimer like this, but filedropper doesn’t let you share pornographic or copyrighted materials over their service.

The following types of infringing files may not be uploaded under any circumstances:
* Files that are pornographic. This includes nudity and sexual situations.
* Use of any service to transmit any material that infringes any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret or other proprietary rights of any third party, including, but not limited to, the unauthorized copying of copyrighted material, the digitization and distribution of photographs from magazines, books, or other copyrighted sources, and the unauthorized transmittal of copyrighted software.

Anyway, thought the site was an attractive site with no adverts, signups, premium features…blah blah blah. Just an all around decent Web 2.0 app.
