Google is worth over a TRILLION dollars. Googles has over a hundred thousand employees. Google is the world's largest web-focused corporation.

Google Drive is one of their flagship products. The main feature of Google Drive is the ability to upload and download files.

WHY IS GOOGLE UNABLE TO IMPLEMENT CORRECT HTTP FILE DOWNLOADS? They're not sending a Content-Length header! This is literally web programming 101!

Seriously, this isn't some "oh, that service is probably just some employee's side project" thing. This is one of their most important products, and file downloads is one of two central features. To me, this indicates that literally nobody in power inside Google cares about software quality - and that anyone who may care don't have the power to fix things.

@mort i think google products have a good quality. But I would never use any of their products due to privacy reasons
