How can I download from the Web to a cloud storage service, bypassing my PC?

I’m looking for some softwere that will allow me to download anything from a website to a cloud service without saving it to my computer or hardrive. Ideally when I am asked where to save the download it should give me an option to choose an app that would connect to the cloud an save downloads there, bypassing my PC.

Do any such services exist?

    There's also ways to automatically save files from your email account to Google Drive, Dropbox etc. Chrome extension Kloudless seems like a really solid option: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/kloudless-two-way-access-to-files-in-gmail-dropbox-google-drive-and-more/

    Depending on which cloud storage service you're using, there are several methods to get the job done. The easiest is with IFTTT. There are recipes that allow you to send download links to GDrive/Dropbox/Box and it'd be automatically downloaded to your cloud storage. Some cloud storage services also allow remote downloading by sending links.
