Using Safari and FoxFire on OS 10.6.8

Sign up was easy, straight forward.

The getting started page took a while to load up. The images required over 30 seconds to load (however, I am using a wireless mobile network on a stormy day, so my connection isn’t the fastest).
The page is step-by-step, easy to follow.
Follow the guide
Followed. (it lead to the bottom of the page :o)
Are the steps in the guide clear?
The guide is very well written out, and the instructions are clear and easy to understand.
Signing up to an Amazon Simple Storage Service account had me wondering if it would have been easier to skip your app and use the Amazon account. I had the impression that I would have to pay for both my Amazon S3 account and for the Boxroom account if I opted to advance beyond the Beta account.
I did not want to set up an Amazon S3 account as I am not interested in having one, nor am I willing to provide payment information for something I will not use. Because of this, I am of course not able to set up the Boxroom account.
The service you seem to be providing is simply a program that connects to someones Amazon A3 and simplifies the file sharing options. It is not a separate storage or server system.Â
It is not a program I will use, as it feels like I will have to pay twice (your service and my Amazon account).
