Dropbox’s addition of a quick-sharing link makes it super simple to share a single file or folder with another person without the hassle of setting up a formal share.
From the Dropbox announcement:
We’re super excited to announce a whole new way to share: now you can send a link to the files or folders in your Dropbox!
Sharing with friends and family is easy! Once you’ve saved that video of your niece’s birthday party to Dropbox, just make a link to send to grandma and she can simply watch online — no download required! This saves you the hassle of having to re-upload or attach it to an email.
Anyone with the link gets access to a snazzy page where they can view (but not edit) your stuff. Our gallery pages give your photos, videos, and even docs the gorgeous, full-browser view they deserve. This means that people who follow your link can see pictures, look at presentations, and watch home videos without having to download and open them separately.
