Ubuntu One's Share links adds enhanced clickable Search files
Ubuntu ships by default Ubuntu One, a powerful online service that allows the user to synchronize data (images, video clips, archives, etc) across multiple computers, as well as publishing (and thus sharing) items in a matter of seconds, action followed (when performed) by obtaining a public published file link; the mentioned link can be copied & pasted on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.
Weeks ago, Ubuntu One Control Panel (the desktop interface containing both configuration options and account details) received a handy highly-usable
Share links addition.
Share links' essential usefulness is the displaying of published files directly on the Ubuntu One Control Panel, furthermore, adding handy buttons (such as
Copy link) to be used for hassle-free copying the (public) link of items (in order to publish them).
The latest updates bring extra functionalities to
Share links, meaning, typing a word/letter in the
Search files area, summons a drop-down containing matched items ("old" behavior), clicking with the mouse pointer on a result, opens the clicked item in a dedicated view, featuring full name (including file extension and accurate file location),
Open in browser,
Copy link, etc.
In order to restore the view to the main
Share links view (where all the published files are displayed), hit the
Back to file list button.
