Imgur Comments

No crap

Positive Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Imgur and Photobucket, ImageShack Sep 2011

I never use Photobucket or Imageshack anymore. Too much crap on their website. I don't care about managing albums, I don't care about today's popular images, I don't care about your stupid bulk uploader. Just give me a page that I can drop screenshots onto. Imgur is great in that regard.

vs ImageShack

- no transloading
- not as response
- does NOT retain filename
- almost zero api based applications
- vague (scant) information on file hosting lifespan (per se or vs usage)
- more likely to rape quality
- flash gui has no non-flash alternative

API
http://api.imgur.com/

- Anonymous API users limited to 50 images upload per hour
- Authenticated API users limited to 100 images upload per hour


vs google

+ not interested in data mining your life
+ no relationship with NSA unlike google
