About a year after drop.io launched, I lead the initiative to real-time enable the website. Previously, when using the web application, any change made to a drop would require all viewers to refresh the page to see the updates. The vision was to make all of these changes appear instantly in each user's browser, without the need for a refresh. It would also allow users to chat with each other through their drops, creating a full, collaborative work environment. This feature is common in web applications today (think Google Docs or Slack), but at the time, it was new and unexplored territory.
