Why does it have upload limits at all? Your client encrypts it, the data is sent over your internet connection to someone else's, their client decrypts it. Why would the data pass through Mozilla's servers?





Wouldn't you need both clients to be online at the same time to do that?

Yes, but most people are online 24/7 anyway, and that number approaches 100 percent for "two people who need to move a file from one to the other right now". Hosted upload file sharing services are a dime a dozen now. How is this better than slapping something on Dropbox or Mega to send someone?
