File transfer tools and services have been popping up recently like mushrooms after the rain. And FilePizza is the most recent addition to the growing list of services that make it possible to share and transfer files using a regular browser. Simplicity is undoubtedly the main attraction of FilePizza. Open the main page in your browser, and drop the desired file onto the upload area (or use the Select a file button to pick the file you want). This will automatically generate a unique URL like http://file.pizza/fungi-peppers-salmon-snowpeas which you can share with others. This link will work as long as the web page is opened.

The fact that the service doesn't require you to upload files to third-party services and the shared file becomes unavailable as soon as you close the web page means that FilePizza is suitable for instant and private file sharing. Better still, FilePizza's source code is available in the project's GitHub repository, so you can easily deploy the service on your own server.
