One of the changes Apple made to .Mac in the wake of Tuesday’s keynote may have been overlooked by most people, but it’s a nice one all the same for those of us in the Mac community who aren’t lucky enough to have their day job use Macs. Apple has built a web front-end for iDisk, allowing .Mac users to be able to upload and download files from their iDisk from almost anywhere using either Safari 2.0.2 or later or Firefox 1.0.4 or later on the Mac and Firefox 1.0.4 or later or Internet Explorer 6 or later on Windows. (It’s probably a safe bet that this works on any platform that can have Firefox 1.0.4 or later running on it.)
To access it, log into the .Mac page and click on the iDisk icon on the lower left-hand side of the page. A new window will pop up and ask for your .Mac login and password, then show the contents of your iDisk. Controls for uploading files to your iDisk, downloading from your iDisk and creating new folders are all available from the web interface.
