Cool Firefox Extension: Save Documents on the Web

We have a lot of Firefox fans around the office. Being the geeks that we are, we were excited about the 3.5 release. This brought some welcome changes from the Firefox community, including an update to Open IT Online, a popular Firefox extension that now lets you save documents on the web straight to your Box account. This extension was built by Denis Remondini, who used the OpenBox API to add this functionality.

If you regularly share, for example, research documents from the web with colleagues or a project team, it's a great time-saver. It's also handy if you use webmail and want to save attached files straight to Box.

Instead of downloading a file to your computer and uploading it to Box, you can simply click on the file and choose the option for saving the file to your Box account.

A new page will open for you to login to Box. Choose where you want to place the document and you're all set.

Have at it, Firefox fans!
