What is the best program for sharing files that is web-based?

I currently have a virtual machine running eXtplorer sharing out picture, video, and document files on an attached USB drive to family members. My family consists of technical and non-technical users, but overall there are complaints about the eXtploer interface. I agree with most of them and I'm looking to replace eXtplorer with something that's a bit more robust, but where the interface is easy enough for non-technical users.

Can someone suggest a file sharing software that is easy to manage and easy to use for non-technical users? Is there anything better than eXtplorer? It doesn't have to be web-based, but not having to install a client would be a plus.

I might suggest barracudaserver/drive. It allows https access to files.
