Puffin Browser lets you save files directly from Web to Google Drive

Cloud storage mediums are some of the most used services on the Internet today even more so that there are many providers that give such services for free for starters. Google is one of them, that provides free 15GB cloud storage for every user account created.

To have files stored using these services the norm is to upload files from a device like phone or PC, and this basically creates an online backup so no worries about losing your important files stored locally on your device. Often times we wish to make an online backup of a file we find on the Internet and possibly save it to our storage for future use without the need of downloading it. The user would have to download it first and the upload it to their cloud. Here is where Puffin Web Browser for Android comes in handy. When you attempt to download a file using Puffin Browser, Puffin will let you choose where to save your file either to device or send it directly to your Google Drive storage.

Very convenient in that no data is used to transfer (upload) the file you wish to save to your Google Drive cloud storage. Puffin handles the transfer quick and easy. Some Android browsers have had a similar mechanism though not saving directly to Google Drive but their own user’s cloud storage for example UC Browser used to have UDisk which was later discontinued. There are other online tools that have seemed to work but do not often transfer all files you hand to them from a download link from another website. This is where Puffin Browser excels.  Having files transferred in this manner to one of the most used cloud storage services is really handy.

  1. Congratulations for your great article regarding puffin browser. I have been using it in my android device and i am amazed with it such as performance and other features.
    But i would like to ask you the reverse option and that’s includes the following question. If i want to upload a file via puffin browser there is no option for google drive but only for dropbox, which i do not use. Is there a way to upload a file via google drive in puffin browser as this happens only in Google Chrome and does not support of course dropbox?

    I would expect your reply either here or better in my twitter account if possible!

    Kind Regards

      • Thanks for the reply! I want to upload a file to a Web location (for example attach a CV to a job web form) and there is no option for Google drive. I have saved my CV in Google drive and there is no option available for selection of it in Google drive via Puffin apk browser. Is there any solution and how it is done as i am new to puffin apk browser and impressed?
        Even when i compose an email and i want to attach a file from google drive there is no similar option available!

        Regards

        • Only Gmail will let you are composing an email and attach a file you already saved in Google Drive because they are all Google services and Gmail and Google Drive can be linked on one Google Account. Other emailing services like Yahoo may only allow you to attach a file directly from phone or computer and not from Google Drive. Puffin Browser doesn’t expose your Google Drive account to all services but transfers files to it from the web.
