Gspace is a Firefox plugin that allows you to use your Gmail account for online storage. File extensions are not an issue, you can upload any type of file which includes music files to stream directly with this Firefox extension.
Another advantage is that you can use unlimited Gmail accounts. It is similar to the Gmail drive that is available for windows. It provides for a simple and easy user interface and can be used from the toolbar. It opens in a new tab in an FTP client like interface. You can store music online, and listen to it directly, transfer files between your computer and Gspace, view photos and even manage your Gdrive anytime and anywhere.

Editor’s Note: Frankly, I am a bit surprised that Google is still permitting this type of use of Gmail service. I am not sure what is the reason for that, but I would go with the assumption that Google can shutdown such services at any time. So, I would not use this type of service to store my important docs. I would rather stick with services like Dropbox alternatives or Mozy Alternatives to store important documents, and use GSpace to store unimportant files, like music file, large videos etc.
