The Denmark-based Ge.tt's simple and fast file-sharing service now supports Gmail and Outlook, Microsoft's replacement for Hotmail. Support for both the webmail services comes in the form of extensions for Google's Chrome browser.

Ge.tt already offers what is essentially one-click file sharing. Users simply select a file such as a video that they wish to share and, even as it starts to upload, they can send the link to colleagues or friends.

As Venture Beat explains:

"The big pull with Ge.tt is that it works in real time: Once a user selects a file to transfer, the file is uploaded in the background, allowing for instant sharing. While Ge.tt works without them, the extensions take simplicity to the next level by working within the email services.

"The strategy behind the move is simple: Ge.tt wants more people to use the service, and there are few better ways to do that than by going after Gmail users"

Ge.tt was launched at the end of 2010 and a year later received $435,000 from Skype co-founder Niklas Zennstrm's London-based venture capital firm Atomico. Ge.tt has a freemium business model offering a free 2GB to smaller users while charging for larger amounts of storage.
