Will Google provide video chat for PowerPC?

Hi,

I have been waiting for Google to provide video talk for PowerPC Macs but it still doesn't seem to work. Google's response to queries on this omission seems to be that it assumed that the PPC Macs don't have the speed required, but obviously for the G5 that's not the case. Anyway, anyone know of a workaround or if they are finally going to allow PPC Mac users to use Google video chat?

Rick.

It's probably not going to happen.

Google will not develop any software for the PPC Mac OS X systems from this day forward. PPC will most likely be orphaned by next year.
