Web-based storage services can be very helpful if you're looking for ways to easily back up files off-site. But I recently came accross some updates to one such service that is making web-based storage a lot more interesting. The people at Box.net have added collaboration functionality into their product making for a pretty easy and slick way to share files with others while providing version control and web-based access. I experimented a bit with the service and found it very easy to set up group folders, add files and invite others to participate.
The tool provides this basic store and share funtionality very well, but it is not a full-blown collabororation suite. It does, however, come with a nice menu of built in 3rd party applications including a file previewer for pdf, doc, xls and ppt and a photo editing tool. But what's most useful is their integration with Zoho which provides the ability to create and edit spreadsheet and document files on the web.
