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:

AuroraFox (Browser) for Mac PowerPC

AuroraFox 10.5 Fx for Mac PowerPC

Just browsing around this morning, I came across some pretty sweet news, Aurora (Mozilla Project) just released a browser for PowerPC users called AuroraFox 10.5Fx!!  Needless to say, I immediately downloaded AuroraFox and launched it, but for some unknown reason, it seems not to work on PowerPC G5 machines only.  I posted the news on Mac PowerPC’s Facebook page and some of the G4 users tried Aurora and it did work for them, and it apparently works fine.  I’d really like to share more information with my Mac PowerPC readers, but I don’t have a G4 machine and usually I like to test all the apps/software before I post them here, but this time I won’t be able to do so.  I think AuroraFox is a great browser and will be a breath of life that we PowerPC users have been waiting for, to keep our machines alive and working.
