Dropbox Gets a Slick New Desktop Client

Even as online storage options proliferate, Dropbox has managed to stay ahead of the pack thanks to better features. Well now Dropbox's desktop client is getting a prettier Version 2.0 overhaul to match its excellence.

Dropbox has basically ditched its bland, text-based menu for a graphic, button-based interface. The taskbar drop down menu with basic status information has been replaced with an infinitely more practical listing of recent file activity, complete with a (!) share button. ANd if you miss the old menu (the one on the right) you can stil get it with a good old-fashioned right/Ctrl-click. This is hardly a revolution, but it sure is easier on the eyes. [Dropbox via TNW]
