    Recently I found out, that the latest Cyberduck-App for Intel-Macs supports two-way autentification for Dropbox, Googledrive and others.
    I've mailed the developers, if the PowerPC version of Cyberduck could get this feature too (currently there's only/at least webDAV-support).
    He answered, that they ceased PPC development but since Cyberduck is OpenSource anyone is free to implement that feature into the old PPC-version.
    Unfortunatly I have no programming skills at all, but maybe someone here has knowledge and fun for that task. It could open a long-term option to get/keep access to main Cloud-providers.

    You mean, there might be some hope for an enhanced Cyberduck?
    I haven't even a rough idea how much work has to be done to get GoogleDocs and Dropbox run with the PPC-version...

    There may be some workarounds that can be employed here, but I would have to do some research.

    Copy and paste source code from Intel into PPC compiler. Recompile.

    Too bad it's not that easy.

    I haven't used dropbox in a long time but I *think* I used to use it on my G4 iMac. Is the PPC client for dropbox really bad now?

    :D

    Hardly. Czo keeps up relevant. But you need Leopard now. Officially Dropbox cut us off over a year ago.

    Cyberduck would be an alternative option to bypass both native clients and (slow) access through browser.

    I guess the developers are really responsive for any help - had a nice email conversation.
    And hey, they have a 12" Powerbook on one of the pictures on their homepage :)

    It is really a shame, as a lot of programs would easily be backported then.

    I wonder if there would be a better method of using a native client...
