Remember that dropbox is not a cdn. CDN means it will have popups all around the world, but it doesn’t have it. But its better to host certain files and images with it, since it has more power server as compared to us, it help us to keep our hosting service provider happy and in return they keep our account happy.
I am currently using dropbox for backing up my wordpress database. I also to host certain css and js files. Since it becomes really easy to minify them, and the server load is also balanced and this way your blog loads much faster and you rank higher.
