- Civil Netizen
Civil Netizen is a personal file transfer program that works by directly connecting you to your recipients. First your files and folders will be compressed into a parcel archive (.parc). Then, instead of e-mailing the actual files, you give a pickup slip to your recipients, which is about 8 lines of text. Using information in the pickup slip, Civil Netizen will begin downloading files directly from your computer. Once download is complete, your recipients can choose to unpack the parcel to their desktop or another folder. Free to use.
