Now you can drag and drop URLs to Dropbox

Dropbox has introduced a new feature that will allow users to drag and drop URLs into the platform and open it on any device.

This will provide users with a unique bookmarking capability that will allow them to open a link they want, regardless of the browser or device they use.

It will help users to store all the information into Dropbox folders, allowing them to put everything that is needed in one place but in different formats.

With the new feature, users will no longer have to jam a URL into the message box or upload a PDF of a web page while sharing a folder.

The new feature only stores the link to the web page and it will not store or cache any files from the web. However, there are third-party applications that can do that as well.

Dropbox said in a post: "This feature is also great for students, who can organize and store URLs of academic sources during research — for reading on the go or for future reference when drafting a paper."
