I need to share some documents with some other collaborators and (that's important) I need to know when a file was last modified and who modified it.

I was wondering if Dropbox could be the solution, I've never used before. An alternative could be Google Drive, but I don't know if a google account is needed to all users.

Yes, dropbox is able to do it, after installing DP (dropbox) simply click on the DP icon on menu bar, right click, and choose: "Launch dropbox website". on the website you can see modified, and if you right click a file you can select "Previous versions" and see who edited (or deleted in our worst case that happened lately..)

ofcourse this will be via browser.. so i am not sure they even need to all install dropbox, just have an account and log-in from website – ilansch Feb 1 '13 at 9:37
It will work straight from the website. You don't need the client first. – Mario Feb 1 '13 at 9:42
