Dropbox wants to stretch desktop file storage to infinity | Computerworld

Timing/availability still tbd, but hopefully this signals the beginning of the end of the need to juggle Explorer/Finder and browser-based views of accessible (personal or shared) files backed by cloud file services; also see A revolutionary new way to access all your files (Dropbox Business Blog)
"The cloud storage company announced a new initiative at its Open conference in London on Tuesday called Project Infinite. It's a push to create a new Dropbox interface that allows users to see all of the files they've stored in the cloud in their computer's file explorer, without requiring them to keep local copies of each document, image, spreadsheet or other file.

With Project Infinite, users will be able to manage their files in the cloud by moving them around inside the Mac OS X Finder or Windows File Explorer, just like they would any local files that are taking up space on their hard drives."
