Over the next few weeks, you’ll start seeing an “Open” button when you preview a file on the web that already lives in the Dropbox folder on your computer. That button will open the file immediately in its native application.
So your pals back at Kokiri Forest have been sending you a ton of Dropbox links to their photos and folders. But you’ve been trekking across the plains of Hyrule, braving water temples, and you know, vanquishing evil. It’s awesome getting all these links, but who has the time to keep track of them all?
Well, have we got a big chest for you: starting today, you can see all the shared links you’ve recently visited in a brand new ‘From others’ tab! Ba-dah-dahn-dahhh!
Everything you’ve visited in your Dropbox link journey will be collected in one place.
Life (in Dropbox) moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. And with all the stuff you’ve got goin’ on, we figured it’d be handy for you to keep track of all your exploits in one place: the Dropbox menu!

It’s been a while (3 years, in fact!) since we last took a look at our mobile web interface — but better late than never! Today, we’re upgrading the mobile website experience for a bunch of devices, including iPhone, Android (2.1+), and Windows Phone 7 , so you can always have your Dropbox on the go. Our intern Cathy has single-handedly revamped the look and feel, added your favorite features from the Dropbox website, and tested thoroughly for a smooth experience. You’re awesome, Cathy!
