Again, no one needs a desktop app that does the same thing as a Bowser window !!!
Actually, it's not even that - the desktop app reflects only the state of the client it's running on. The web (dropbox.com) reflects the state of the account as a whole.
I.e. Files may not have fully synced between clients, or between web and client - the web tells you what's on your actual Dropbox.
If the desktop client was a reflection of the account as we see it on the web, then there might be a case for it's usefulness.
In any case, we need an option to disable it. I'm confident the development team will realize this and implement it soon enough, even though they are possibly hoping it will "catch on" and users will "realize the value through a forced hand" - We won't.
How can I try out the new desktop app? This is something I'm interested in, since I want a way to view version history without going into the brower.
EDIT: It can be found at this url:
It still requires you to go to the web interface to see the version history, so it's not very helpful for me.
I cannot install the windows version no matter how many times I select "run" or save it and then try to run the installer.
Nothing happens and I am stuck on version 70.
Every time I start my laptop I get a message to update DropBox.
This is VERY frustrating.
