OneDrive is perfect for M1 now, Windows 11 gets an incredible feature, Google's favorite extensions, and more 1

If you’ve been using Dropbox on an M1 Mac (like me), then you’re probably tired of how it eats away at battery life. Dropbox still hasn’t released a native Apple Silicon version of its desktop app, meaning that it needs to run through Apple’s taxing Rosetta 2 compatibility layer as it constantly uploads, downloads, and updates files.

But maybe it’s time to forget about Dropbox. Microsoft just launched a native Apple Silicon version of its OneDrive desktop app, offering significant speed and battery improvements that make it the best alternative to iCloud on macOS. Check out the top story to learn more!

Other Highlights:

  • Roku was supposed to lose YouTube today, but something changed.

  • Microsoft quietly released a new Windows 11 feature, but it deserves a ton of fanfare. Like, really.
  • … and MORE!
