Firefox plugin: Drag & Drop.io

Posted by ClifNotes, May 2009, permalink Browser Tools Internet File Sharing


It’s hard to beat simple online file hosting services … until  you start looking at the features that come bundled with them.


Drop.io (pronounced drop-ee-oh) has a free file hosting service that literally has everything but the kitchen sink. They offer file hosting with a multitude of collaboration options like commenting, live chat, conference calls, voice mail, guest permissions, RSS feeds and email. Now they are offering a nice Firefox Plugin that lets you drop your files into their service with ease. Dropio is awesome … and the basic free service allows you to host 100mb in each drop. See this screenshot of the admin page for a drop and you’ll see what I’m talking about.


See the video below for a demo of the Firefox plugin.

Here’s a short description from the dropio folks …


Drag & drop your files directly into Drop.io drops!
A drop is a chunk of space you can use to store and share anything privately (pictures, videos, audio, documents, etc.), without accounts, registration, or an email address. Drops are not "searchable" and not "networked;" they just exist online as private points for exchange between individuals or groups.
Create as many drops as you want in as little as two clicks and set things like a password, whether others can add to the drop, and how long you want it to exist (you can renew later). Drops can be flexibly used in a range of ways from sharing family photos and videos to collaborating on group projects.
