All new and improved S3Fox Organizer for Amazon S3

Earlier today Jeff barr told me that he uploaded all his photos to amazon S3 using S3Fox Organizer. S3Fox Organizer, developed by Rahul Jonna, is a firefox extension for managing your objects in Amazon S3. We had blogged about it earlier. Motivated by the number of hits he received, Rahul released a new version (v0.3) of his tool with some really cool features:

  1. Synchronize folders : By mapping your local folder with remote folder (on Amazon S3), it will automatically sync up all the files in the folders.
  2. Drag-n-drop files from the system (windows explorer, etc) to Amazon S3 : By clicking on the “s3fox” icon in the firefox statusbar (which will open a new panel) and simply dragging-n-dropping your files onto that panel, files will be uploaded to the remote directory you are currently in.

In this new version, he also fixed some content-type related bugs.

His slick “ACL manager” and very-useful “Copy URL to clipboard” features are also worth a look!!

Best part of this is: the tool is just a 70KB download and takes less than 5 seconds to install.

Nice Work Rahul!
