EDIT - I still have that impression - everything seems geared towards me "downloading DropBox". If you can let me know how I can make the file available to others without installing anything in my PC, I'd be grateful.
Sorry, when you edit a post it doesn't show up in the new posts list, so I didn't see this request.
Dropbox does a lot more than the file locker sites, which is why its business model doesn't require throttling the transfer speeds of free users. The primary purpose of the desktop app is to sync files from your computer to your online storage. If you don't need that, then you don't need the app--just use the web client. (Something not a lot of folks realize: Syncing essentially saves every version of the file, which is very nice if you accidentally overwrite something important.)
