I could have written this post a couple of days ago but since I was busy test driving the new Seesmic Web and Seesmic Desktop 0.40, it was just today that I was able to find time and I’ve made further research as well.

It’s not going to be surprising for most internet users to upload files online like photos and videos on most file sharing sites like Flickr, Slideshare, and YouTube among many others. Getting to use Firefox Universal Uploader add-on or simply Fireuploader allows uploading of files from the comfort of your web browser in an easy to use interface with a wide array of selections for multiple file sharing accounts via a single interface or by using only one extension.

Also, Fireuploader allows direct downloads from your file sharing accounts which are made possible via the API provided by each website however APIs are different so you have to expect different functionalities on each account that’s why you may notice some file sharing service providers not having a download button while others have.

Here’s the list of the most common file sharing sites supported by Fireuploader:
– Rapidshare.com
– Photobucket
– Mosso
– Box.net
– Flickr
– Picasa
– Youtube
– Facebook
– Webshots
– Omnidrive
– Smugmug
– SmeStorage
– Google Docs
– Snaphappi, a digital photo processing website
– Adobe Share and Slideshare to name a few.

This Firefox tool works with Firefox versions 3.0-3.5 and is very easy to use and highly functional, so if you’re the kind of person who loves sharing your files, this extension is a must have.
