It would be great if whenever a user drag and drops a file, it appears as a semi-transparent row in the folder they have been dropped and gets gradually more visible (or some other eyecandy) as it gets uploaded. Dropping multiple files would provide more granular visual representation of the upload state in the current upload sequence (e.g. files which are uploaded and their individual upload state). Thoughts?
Nice idea. However, it doesn’t add real functionality and instead of such a cosmetic improvement (not sure that it is that easy to implement that it works on all browsers and OSes), I’d prefer some improvement of the sync client, more developers to improve apps (more stable, add needed functionality).
The sync client and the web client seem to be two separate concerns. From my perspective it would mean different type of developers dealing for both concerns. Similarly, to how the sync client is aware of what you have queued for upload, it would make sense for the web client to follow that methodology. The new functionality is to make the web client more descriptive of a current single of multi-file uploads. Not sure where the uncertainty of "not sure that it is that easy to implement that it works on all browsers and OSes" came from, but dynamically creating new elements in the DOM is something that exists for all browsers and platforms for many years.
