NetFlix on PowerPC (Is it Possible?)

I admit that I regularly get e-mails asking me how to watch Netflix on a PowerPC, so I thought I had better answer this question to the masses.  In the past I did some research but I didn’t have time to finish the post.  Here are some of the links and resources that I have to share with you:

I don’t have a Netflix account so I’m not sure if works or not.

This Link it says to Delete InstallationCheck from the “Show Package Contents” > “Resources”.

Aurora: “the next generation” for Mac PowerPC

AuroraFox Browse for Mac PowerPC

AuroraFox is on my G5.  I think/hope they fixed “whatever” was being a problem and not supporting G5s, and I’m anxious for the new update to come so I can start using this program on regular basis.  Yesterday, I got home from work and tried to download it again and suddenly it worked and launched with no problems at all.  So far I’m using it and like it.  I will keep AuroraFox as another browser option because I like to have 2 sometimes 3 browsers open to do different tasks at the same time.  Right now I have 3 tabs on: twitter, facebook and myapplespace.com running, with no problem.

I like the full screen view and it looks like you can sync your firefox account with Aurora, plus mange the famous add-ons…

Well so far that is the news for the Monday, and you can download the version that is working for me from this link:

Browsers For Mac PowerPC

Here is the thing there are good choices for PowerPC but there are much more for Intel. It’s unbelievable why they stopping doing browsers for our old PPC. Anyway, I think the most sad thing for a PPC user is not be able to use Google Chrome. But follow a list of good Browsers:

* TenFourFox (the only one that support HTML5):                                                             http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox

* Camino (one of the best)                                                                                                         http://www.caminobrowser.org

* FireFox (3.6)                                                                                                                              http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html#languages

* Safari (there is no link because is already on your computer, sadly Apple don’t update anymore)

* Opera (10.63)                                                                          http://www.opera.com/browser/download/?os=mac&ver=10.63&local=y

* OminiWeb (this is a great browser)                                                                                http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omniweb/download/

*SeaMonkey                                                                                                              http://www.seamonkey-project.org/

* Flock (2.0) Was really good too, but they discontinued

* NetScape                                                                                                                                      http://browser.netscape.com/releases
