…as in users of PowerPC Macs, running at least OS 10.4.11 with a G3/G4/G5 processor.
I’ve run across a bowser based on Firefox that runs on these machines, and it has all the latest improvement in web browsers [ see below]. Click over to http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/.
It looks really good – and it may be enough for me to keep my first generation Mac Mini around for a good long while!
You HAVE to love their copy on the page:
….although it uses the Firefox code base, it’s not Firefox. It uses code tuned for 10.4 (and compatible with 10.5), adds new PowerPC-specific improvements and restores the glue necessary to get most of modern Firefox’s advanced features working on our older computers, offered in separately hand-tuned builds for G3, G4/7400, G4/7450 and G5 processors to get the most from your specific computer.
TenFourFox requires a G3 Power Macintosh, Mac OS X v10.4.11 or Mac OS X v10.5.8, 100MB of free disk space and 512MB of RAM. Video playback will be poor on systems slower than 1.25GHz; we recommend a G5. Intel Macintoshes are not supported (and will be mercilessly mocked); see FAQ for info.
