Sharing files on the web

  • Dropbox makes it very easy to share files publicly from the finder of OS X. It’s is fully integrated into OS X.
  • Google Backup and Sync makes it a bit more complicated to share files because it is still web-based. You need to go to your Google drive on the web and share it from there. (Once it’s set up it works well though!)
