WONDERFUL app, I use it for sharing constantly (Adium has file-transfer problems with the AIM protocol). Having a folder on your computer that anyone can read from using a URL is great. Dropping a file onto the sidebar in Finder and copying the link takes 5 seconds, compared to the 1-2 minutes of getting through all the webpages on a hosting service in order to upload even the smallest file. This is one of three programs that I'd ever consider paying for, 8/10 (-2 for not having any kind of preference pane and for having an ugly & unnecessary menu-bar icon)

Dropbox is pretty great, it's very seamless, feels tightly integrated with the OS.

Thought that this should be brought to everyone's attention from the DropBox TOS:

"Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. Dropbox cooperates with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We will disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including but not limited to subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of Dropbox or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical, inappropriate or legally actionable."

Dropbox is one of the best -- and most useful -- applications I've seen in a while. As a student, Dropbox is a lifesaver. I keep all my assignments and projects on my personal computer, work on projects at work when there's down time, and can access everything from school. Previously this file-transfer-craziness was handled with a flash drive... that had a bad habit of getting left places.

Seriously, to anyone who needs to move files around frequently, Dropbox is a fantastic option!

this is a very cool app, very nicely done and works like a charm on windows, too. i just wish it would hog less memory; 50 megs right after launch is a bit too hungry for my taste. since i don't actually really need something like this right now, i've stopped tinkering around with it for reasons of performance.

Great idea - wonderful having a synced folder between machines. However, currently does not sync resource forks, which makes it a problem for loading apps and things like .textclipping documents.
