What is the "Web View for Dropbox™" add-on and how can I use it?
"Web View for Dropbox™" aims to provide a distraction free way to access to dropbox.com without switching tabs. In the Chrome version, Dropbox is opened in a sandboxed window and hence has no access to your browser cookies. This way you can even open multiple instances of dropbox (one inside browser and the other one inside this application). In Firefox version however, dropbox.com is loaded inside a panel view and is accessed by clicking on the toolbar button. In both methods the idea is to have access to Dropbox service without the need to switch tabs
Please note that this is not an official application; there is no intention on misleading users. It is recommended to read Dropbox terms and conditions before using this service.
What is the meaning of the badge icon?
Basically badge number is equvalent to the number that is shown in dropbox.com. Mostly used to display the number of shared files which have not been accepted yet.
Is it possible to change the location of the toolbar button in the Firefox version?
Yes, please read this blog post: a Comprehensive Guide to Firefox Customization.
What's new in this version?
Please check the Logs section.
For some reason, the toolbar badge is not updating, how can I fix this?
Open the toolbar panel. In the left side, there is a refresh button. Press the button and wait for a few seconds for the badge to calculate the number of unread conversations.
What are the options I have in the toolbar panel (Firefox Only)?
You can open dropbox.com web, FAQs page or the bug reporter directly from the panel. Also you can refresh the panel. If you need a new feature post a bug report and I'll try to add this it in the next release.

Storing files over a channel which is easily accessible from anywhere in the world has always been something sought after by the thinkers. To make it possible, a tool was created and equipped with interactive features; which is now known as Dropbox. Being extremely easy to install and use, Dropbox includes almost every feature you would get in an online storage solution. Online photo albums, file-versioning, file sharing, backup, website and multi-machine synchronization are some of the most engaging features which Dropbox has to offer to its users. The only feature which is missing would be the integration with websites, which allows you to change and edit files within Dropbox. However, when it comes to accessing the Dropbox main panel, while users are switching between multiple tabs, people might get frustrated or annoyed. In such cases, the "Web View for Dropbox™" add-on is the best option you have!
The "Web View for Dropbox™" add-on is an easy-to-use tool or a cross-browser application, which provides you with easy access to your Dropbox main panel through your Chrome browser page. The official web interface of Dropbo is loaded in the toolbar, and it is opened in a separate or sandboxed window for easy access. You get badge, as well as desktop notification upon receiving any sharing requests, which keeps you tuned with all the new updates in your Dropbox panel. Apart from everything else, it allows you to stay connected with your Dropbox account, while working on different tasks simultaneously.
I would recommend this add-on to everyone, especially people looking for an easier way to access their Dropbox account.
