Simply because I think git doesn't have any limits over how much data we can store online - for free. Isn't that true?

To be frank, all of them are good reasons why people don't use github for that purpose. Seems like there really is no way for us to change how git operates, so that we could change things we share on git. How depressing... :(

@Sathya: Yeah, I know that github is a front end for git. git does use delta compression. You can see more details about it here: stackoverflow.com/questions/9478023/… I didn't knew that detail about Dropbox. Thanks! Yes, they were not intended for same purpose, but I asked this question to know about git even more. I could learn about algorithm, but knowing what git do "that" special to make it specific for "source files only" is a question for which answer couldn't be easily found by me.

@Sathya: I think Github uses the delta compression to check differences between previous and current versions and version controls them accordingly. Whereas Dropbox uses the same to check differences, and then synchronizes both of them. I think Dropbox removes older versions of the file, unlike Git where we can revert back to older versions. I can't understand why people don't use Git like their Dropbox. I think it can do what Dropbox does, at least theoretically. Doesn't git version control using pretty much same algorithms? Correct me if I am wrong here.

comment How to delete search history on Facebook?
I have changed the answer keeping in mind the recent changes made in Facebook. I made it in the form of a guide. I don't know for sure about the second part of the answer - whether Facebook made the history accessible or not. So, please review the answer and change it accordingly. Thanks!
