Pearltrees, the content curation service that is evolving into a file manager, has taken a logical step forward today with the introduction of the ability upload and organize any kind of file. These can then be added to a user’s ‘pearltrees’ of online content, such as Web pages and images.
Files can be shared with other users, making this a useful collaborative research tool as well as a flexible alternative to the likes of both Dropbox and Pinterest. To tie in with the new feature, user storage limits have been increased. Free accounts now get up to 250MB, while paid account tiers now offer 5GB, 25GB and 100GB.
