An integrated desktop data-transfer service called InternetExpress, which was designed to overcome the shortcomings in existing network-based transfer tools with respect to heterogeneity, seamlessness, user-interface simplicity, timeliness and security, is presented. This service allows users to share data conforming to any data standard across heterogeneous environments on the Internet, assuming the environments follow the general principles of the desktop metaphor. InternetExpress is selection-based. A prototype of InternetExpress has been implemented in the Intermedia desktop environment.<>
