    ...Well so much for the new, eagerly-awaited, RapidShare website: http://www.rapidshare.com/

    It has a new, and very clean, interface, apart from the spelling mistakes, otherwise it's same sh*t - different design. (As it is Happy Hour, I have been unable to see if it still uses the cat captcha system or if this, hopefully, has been replaced).

    As I've said before, with so many better free alternatives, why use Rapidshare? A Google search proves almost everyone hates it!

    Just two favoured alternatives:

    www.mediafire.com/
    www.megaupload.com/

    According to reviews http://www.bigupload.com is the fastest and much faster than RapidShare and MegaUpload.

    Don't like it really, maybe I'll get used to it but I prefer the old one.

    Biggest redesign blunder EVER. They had a distinctive look and they threw it away for a generic, three color layout.

    As for functionality, they've removed features!. Remote uploads have to be queued and removed one by one now. Just garbage. What they should have done is made the old look glossy. A little bump in the style not this entire overhaul.

    nishanthe, try your account id instead of login name.

    nme,
    It doesn't working. I think its not because of login details. because it stratightly re-direct to browser's downloader, instead of DAP, and there are no way to control it.
