Dropbox is the popular web-based file hosting service where users can store and share files with others using file synchronization. After a recent web-design revamp it added support for drag and drop.

With a sleek new web-design Dropbox is working hard to offer their users the best experience possible. The latest feature to be added is the drag and drop support for browsers who implemented the HTML5 Drag and Drop API.

If your on another computer that dosn't have the Dropbox Client installed and you need to store some files , there's never been an easier way. Open Chrome, Firefox or Safari, log into your Dropbox account and simply drag the files and drop them onto the webpage and your done.


Wanna see something awesome? If you use Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, you can now upload files by dragging them from your desktop onto the Dropbox website. After Dropbox detects the upload, it’ll work its magic to get your stuff wherever you need it. This is just a small step toward giving you a simpler (and more fun!) dropbox.com.

The drag and drop feature is not new, Gmail introduced it a long time ago and other similar services as Dropbox already support this feature ( gethopper.com , dragbox.org).
