Mega update: Dotcom’s service now accepts Bitcoin, will expand into email, chat, voice, video, and mobile

Kim Dotcom knows how to stir up a storm on Twitter. On Saturday, he announced Bitcoin support for his cloud storage service and also sent out a slew of tweets suggesting Mega is going to become much more than just the successor to Megaupload.
Doctom reemphasized his company’s commitment to privacy, while also suggesting that Mega is uniquely positioned in New Zealand to safeguard user data. He also teased that Mega would expand into email, chat, voice, video, and mobile services “in the coming years.”

I wonder if the other services will feature the same client-side encryption. I think it's a key innovation that goes well with services for which customers want more privacy. Blockchain.info/wallet and Mega are the only two I know of who use client-side encryption in browser. Anyone know any others? Are there any javascript libraries to make building such apps easier?

Thanks, that looks nice but both FF and Chrome appear corrupted for me. Will try again later.
