  FileFront Network introduces more direct downloading - Network News
  Posted by: Pro-Filer on 06-29-2006 @ 13:42
This News Item has been viewed 214,961 times
Hey everyone!

Several months ago we added a feature to all of our network sites which disabled the graphical ads on our sites for users logged in with FastPass.
Today, we've made another big improvement.
When you click the download now link for our filefront mirror, you will no longer be sent to the FileFront.com Info page where you'd have to click another 'Download Now' link. Instead, as of today non-FastPass users will be sent to a FileFront page which starts your download rightaway!
Users that are logged in to FastPass will immediately start downloading upon clicking our Download Now link, you won't even see the FileFront.com page/layout!

I think you'll all enjoy this improvement so you can get downloading faster!

Our next step is to create 1 login for FileFront.com and all the network sites so you only have to log into one place instead of having to log into each Network site seperately upon visiting them (even though you can use the same username and password for all of them). Unfortunately, I have no estimated date on when we'll implant that feature, but it will be added as another measure to improve the network sites!

Enjoy!


- The FileFront Network Team

Yes they will however these network sites are as much filefront.com as filefront.com main page is so it's not a loss. Au contraire, it pleases the visitors and that's what counts.

If you regularly download from the sites the time saved will add up, plus it's simply less of a hassle. Saves you patience to a greater degree than it actually saves you time. I personally find it much more amiable to use with as few extranneous clicks as possible.

This is one enhancement that I happen to enjoy. I've been visiting various FN sites for quite a few years, and love this improvement. Makes downloading ALOT easier.

Let's just say certain things are more of a priority now. Certain things you will appreciate much more than those developer features smile.
