So... Your saving something to the "Cloud", AKA Internet harddrives, just to have to download it again at some point in time?

Waste of Time is a Waste of Time. I mean, even if you "save a web page" to the cloud, you have to DOWNLOAD IT to READ IT... So in the end, your just wasting space on the cloud servers.

exactly. This is kinda stupid - if the file is already in the cloud, all we need is to save the link...not download it to another cloud.

The purpose of this extension is to push the files to all of your devices.

Suppose you have multiple computers, a tablets and a phone connected to your Dropbox account. This extension will push the file to all of your devices. You don't have to download the file manually.

Use "Read It Later" extension or bookmark the link and enable the sync feature in your browser if you use multiple PCs. ;)

Suppose I am downloading 13 mb file.

Will it download and upload straight into my skydrive ? Or it creates temporary folder on the machine.

No if you cant download the file at the time and when you get home the file is gone...

Seriously, instead of bashing please, get your 2 braincells to work (I know it must hurt, but please, try)

Another use I see for this, is to download a file at home without having to log through teamviewer or a remote desktop in order to access the url where the file is in order to download

And in the end you delete the file from the cloud (usually transfers between internet servers are faster than from the server to your PC, with the added benefit of having all the time in the work to get the file once it hits your cloud service)

And the file is gone... see? (the link to the extension is dead)
