Free Online Storage!

Wouldn't it be nice to have access to files wherever you go? I've used a lot of online storage options and my favorite used to be Yahoo! Japan's Briefcase with 30mb of storage, that you could also make public. I also tried Yahoo!'s Briefcase, which also had 30mb of storage, but in order to share files you need to upgrade to a premium account. In comes Box.net!

Box.net offers a FREE 1gb account with no advertising, and has also recently included file sharing. The site is simple, easy to use, and well designed using AJAX. Round image edges and blue/yellow color pallet make the site appealing to the eyes.

Uploading and filing files is a breeze, and can be done by drag and drop or, if you prefer, you can navigate to any folder on your computer. In addition to making storage folders in your Box, you can also tag your files to make finding them easier.

Rather than bogging someone's e-mail account with e-mailed photo's, you can now just upload them to your Box, in high-res and share them. I find being able to download full sized images much more appealing than receiving a resized low-res picture.
