Cloud extensions for Chrome and Firefox

Cloud computing has revolutionized the use of the PC and the saving of the most important files and documents. Thanks to them it is possible to carry all the files that we cannot do without even when we are from the office PC or we want to send an important email from the smartphone containing the latest statement of the company month. If we are in the office, however, it may be difficult to install clients to manage all the clouds, also considering the danger that personal files may be copied to PCs in public use or accessible by some other employee.
Here we will show you how to make the most of the clouds by integrating them directly into the web browser through extensions, which can provide some of the most sought-after features.

Cloud on Google Chrome
There are extensions for all the most famous clouds and they offer: integration of services and features, increased browsing security and image uploading and (among the most useful things) the ability to copy or move the content present in a cloud space in another, so that you always have a large number of copies saved. Some also allow you to interface with personal servers via FTP and WebDAV, obtaining a convenient offline component where you can save files (however, also present in the cloud!). To integrate some of the cloud services available on Google Chrome we can use one of the following free extensions.
1) iCloud Dashboard

With this extension we will be able to access the Apple cloud and any Webapps installed on an Apple device already in possession. It also supports notifications in addition to the main features present in the iPhone.
We can download this extension from here -> iCloud Dashboard
2) Save to OneDrive

We use Microsoft's OneDrive as a space to save photos to the cloud "> Save to OneDrive

MEGA is one of the cloud services that offers the largest free space (50 GB), ready to be used for documents and personal files.
The site is famous for its high security and for being (in many respects) the heir of the late Megavideo and Megaupload, albeit with much stricter anti-piracy measures than ever before. The service can be used without any extension, but by installing the official one on Chrome we can increase the security of the connection, the download performance and the loading times of the MEGA pages.
We can download this extension from here -> MEGA
4) CloudHQ (Sync Google Drive)

We want our files to be synced simultaneously to Google Drive and other Cloud services (Box, OneDrive, Dropbox and others "> CloudHQ (Sync Google Drive)
5) Transfer Dropbox to Google Drive

We have a lot of files saved on Dropbox but the subscription has expired or will expire very soon "> Transfer Dropbox to Google Drive
Cloud on Mozilla Firefox
For Mozilla Firefox there are much more difficulties in finding useful extensions for cloud services, since this free web browser has completely changed its structure and code, with many apps that have become no longer compatible (from version 57 onwards). Waiting for compatible extensions to appear here are the ones that we have managed to find ready for Firefox Quantum.
1) pCloud Search

This extension will allow you to connect the pCloud cloud by integrating it into the browser.
The extension can be downloaded for -> Firefox and for Chrome.
2) Pinned Google Drive

This very simple extension shows a Google Drive icon in the top bar of Mozilla Firefox. By clicking on it you can immediately open the Google Drive space in a new browser tab, with all the files and folders of your cloud space already available.
If we are already logged in we will immediately see the cloud space, otherwise it will be necessary to enter the Google credentials to access our profile.
At the moment it does not offer other features, but we can be sure that over time new integrations with the Google cloud service will arrive.
We can download the extension from here -> Pinned Google Drive
