Most file hosting services, such as Rapidshare or MegaUpload, make you jump through a few hoops before you're able to use their services: register, or pay for unlimited storage.

MediaFire is different. You don't have to register in order to upload your files, and you have unlimited storage. It's also extremely user-friendly, with features such as an upload progress page and file management utilities.
