Dropbox just introduced simple URL bookmarking inside its folder system. Just drag and drop an URL from your desktop browser tab to another open tab with Dropbox.com. It also works by dragging a URL from your desktop web browser to File Explorer or the Mac Finder.

Adding URLs is also possible in all their mobile apps via the sharing function inside Chrome and Firefox on Android, Safari on iOS, and on Windows Phone 8 via the share contract inside Internet Explorer.

The new URL will appear as a file alongside your other files, synced across all your devices.

This feature seems like a natural addition, since a folder system is often used to organize a project, event or anything else. Collecting a web page as a resource in the same location as a file is a simple and useful step forward in organizing your work.

Here’s how Dropbox describes the new feature:

Now, you can drag and drop URLs into your Dropbox — on the web and on your desktop — and open them on any of your devices. This means you can take your bookmarks anywhere, instead of having them confined to a certain browser on a certain computer. But it also means you can organize all your information, no matter the format, into Dropbox folders — so your information is in one central place.
