What is ownCloud Web

ownCloud Web is a single-page standalone frontend based on modern web technologies.

ownCloud Web was made to match the speed and scalability of the upcoming ownCloud Infinite Scale, but you can use it together with version 10.6.

At the moment you can bring the new interface to your server installing the extension from the official marketplace or compiling it from source code.
