Manage Cloud Storage with Google Glide

Manage Cloud Storage with Google Glide

New browser toolbars from Google allows users to control and manage their personal hard drives, cloud storage, applications and web services directly from their browser toolbar.

Launched by Glide, the new toolbars can work with Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari browsers.

Those interested to benefit from these new services can visit GlideOS to install their very own Glide Browser Plugins.

Google claims that its unique services provide cross platform compatibility for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android, Android Honeycomb, BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry Tablet OS (QNX), iOS, webOS, and Symbian.

This is how Glide works- it effectively attaches a cloud operating system, productivity and collaboration applications, file synchronization and web capture and conversion tools to a browser toolbar.

This means that users can leverage Glide services to perform a range of services such as browse web content and personal files through one user interface, capture and convert web content into personal files and edit and publish personal files to Twitter, Facebook and Glide Engage.

Thanks to Glide, users can also collaboratively share and edit personal files and web content with version control and file tracking and share files across devices and platforms with Glide’s automated device identification and file translation for over 250 file formats.

Moreover, Glide services can protect users files with granular permissions based access rights and monitor views, downloads, modifications and uploads of files.

Glide expands the browser’s primary function from web browsing to a way station between your hard drive(s) and the cloud,” said TransMedia chairman and CEO, Donald Leka. “Glide serves as a cloud hub making it easier to move personal files to the cloud and web content to the desktop and conduct all of your business securely – directly from your browser toolbar.”
