You could use your browser to download pirated content, just as you could use a BitTorrent client to download pirated content, but that isn’t the only possible use.

Dropmark – The Easiest Way To Share Files And Collaborate With Anyone [Web & Mac]

How do you typically collaborate with others on projects? By email? Or do you try to get everyone to sign up for the latest cloud file sharing service that you use? Neither of those options are very practical. This is where most collaboration tools fall short – everyone involved must have an account to work together and access the information.
