Microsoft has made its drive-in-the-sky service a lot easier to use.

The new features include the ability to share files with anyone (not just Live users) by sending an email link.

There is also a new drag-and-drop file uploader, much like Minus uses. File upload runs in the background with progress tracked in an upload window. The uploader normally uses Silverlight. But if you run an HTML5 enabled browser (Chrome, IE 10, etc.), the upload feature will use it instead.

File management is greatly improved with the ability to create and rename folders, move, delete and download multiple files, easier file moves and copies and right-click menus for documents.

Other features include a revamped photo slideshow with easier-to-find captions, enhanced PDF viewing, RAW file support and multiple speed improvements.
