    The new Dropbox app is huge (288 MB), contains Chromium and pegs my CPU every time it does anything substantial. I just want my files to sync. I don’t want all this new junk. :/

    Management tip: If anyone on your team suggests adding Chromium to your project, you’re heading in the wrong direction.

    Does it still use 100% of your processor for a good part of the day?

      The new app is even worse with resources. I now leave it paused and just unpause to sync.

        Could be worse, it completely hosed every github repo on my system for some reason. Thousands of duplicates of files and renaming the originals.

        No idea what their 1,500 person team actually works on but its not syncing software.

    the slack integration looks great but also seems to demonstrate why you don't really need dropbox as a standalone app. communication is already done (better) elsewhere.

    The new release is consuming a huge storage space. And, the few points mentioned above by others is really valid points. Sorting all these issues could result a good yield.
