Microsoft today announced load of new features to its SkyDrive online storage service. The updates are around new file management, HTML5 file uploading, simple sharing, support for new file types and more. Performance improvements were also done with this update,
- Many actions now happen inline (such as upload, delete, copy, move, rename, share, and create).
- We preload more resources when you’re typing your username and password before logging in. This makes it faster to view and edit Office docs.
- Signing in to SkyDrive is about 50% faster.
On pdf support,
In this release, when you click a PDF, we load it using whatever available PDF viewer your browser supports. This means that on IE, Firefox and Safari, PDFs will load in the browser if you have Adobe Acrobat installed. On Chrome, PDFs will load using Chrome’s native PDF viewer.
