The ability to move files around is important. It can also be a pain in the neck. If you're working on a website, or updating your blog, or even putting your vacation pictures up on Flickr, you know that it's not always the easiest thing to do. Sometimes you have to use complicated web forms; other times you have to fire up a separate FTP program. Everything else you do with files on your system is pretty easy, why shouldn't this kind of stuff be easy as well?

Dockdrop tries to answer this question. Once you've installed this tool, you can literally drag and drop files to upload them. As the name implies, you get an icon sitting in your dock where you can just drop your files. Up pops a dialog that lets you decide where and how you're going to send your files; click a button, and they're flying of to their destination. No more complications. It even gives you a transparent progress bar so you can monitor your upload while you get back to business.

A Mac application, Dockdrop runs under OS X 10.4 and later.
