Microsoft have this week rolled out a new upgrade to their Dropbox style SkyDrive service which has taken the cloud storage solutions away from Microsoft Silverlight and replaced it with HTML5.
SkyDrive allows you to put all your documents in one place for easy access, but rather than being a background storage solutions Microsoft has developed SkyDrive as a more front-end application with the addition of the new HTML 5 code.
Within the new SkyDrive service videos will now use the H.264 format and the default video player is HTML5 rather than Silverlight based, and photographs will also be viewed using HTML5 enabling infinite scrolling of thumbnails and a new slide viewer. Resizing your browser now also smoothly resizes all your thumbnails we ease thanks to the new HTML5 and CSS3 transitions.
