What a lovely URL.......
Google Drive has turned on a feature that lets the cloud storage service become a limited web host. It's long been possible to allow others to access data stored in the service, which can produce a URL for files.

Wonder how many people felt socially engineered enough to click on the "OK" button...
The max size of the minefield is 50X50 with 500 mines. I wanted infiniti. Just more proof that Google is evil.
Oh the web hosting thing.
I'm sure this service will be a useful way to host phishing websites to get peoples Google logins so thumbs up to Google!

And he's probably spinning in his grave right now, for associating him with Google - the antithesis of his own admittedly-loose moral code.
Had to restart Firefox after that page locked it up. Was that the intention?
This is breaking news. Once Minesweeper goes SaaS Microsoft is finished.
AWS has had a free tier for while now, even S3, so I don't know what virtue a GDrive free HTML hosting has over it.
...and get free source control built in!
