    check out http://www.gladinet.com. There is a beta program allowing you to mount SkyDrive as a virtual folder in windows explorer. You can do drag and drop without a browser. Good for Firefox users.

    gladinet is BLOATWARE and infests your system.. while it’s not malware it’s bloody poorly designed…. nice idea try again hire a competent developer

    get the firefox extension: dragdropupload

    to make dragging A GROUP of files to the upload fields easier


    I’ve been using an implementation of it for years over many versions of firefox.

    IE8 still cannot hold a candle to firefox.

    Only firefox sports http://EasyList.adblockplus.org and a whole HOST of brilliant adblocking- and adhiding tools. IE8 falls waaaaaaaaaay short of the barely sufficient mark. Even Iron Chromium has better adblocking options than IE8
