Multi-Safari for Mac PowerPC

Multi-Safari for Mac PowerPC

So I guess you probably are thinking “why the hell am I posting about Safari if this browser comes with all Macs?”  It’s true, all Macs come installed with this great Browser, but once you update your browser the old version is gone, so this post is to show you how you can run multiple Safari versions along with the newest version that your PowerPC can get. (Let’s put it this way, because we know that PowerPC can not go any further than 5.0.6).  Anyways, choose one or more versions of Safari that you’re missing and start playing around with it.  It won’t bring you any new or great features other than the nostalgic feeling and you probably like that because in few years we (PowerPC) community will be 10 years out of “the orchard”.

I myself installed Safari 2.0.4 / 3.0.4

Recently, I got some great comments about browsers compatible with Mac PowerPC. I will be posting them here very soon so keep watching!

Video Plugin Flash Facebook PowerPC

A few weeks ago, I got a message that advised I wasn’t able to watch the a video on facebook, using a mac powerpc.  It looks like the flash/plugin it’s not compatible with Facebook!  The maximum flash update you can get is version 10.1 and to be able to watch Facebook’s videos, you need version 11.1.
Good news… Someone already looked out for us and created or modified the required plugin for mac powerpc users!
I did install this in my sister’s PowerBook running Leopard, and it worked very well!  Hopefully this will fix our problems in the future.
For more informations you can watch the youtube video here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCrAKhv3R_c
The link to download with read me – http://www.steelbin.com/FPforFBPPC.zip
With this plugin you will be able to watch Flash videos from Facebook on your Mac PowerPC, using Safari.  Hooray!  This plugin only works with Safari, but maybe soon we will be able to use with TenFourFox!
I really appreciate my PowerPC friend’s blog – http://ppcluddite.blogspot.com/  who posted this great news for all survivors of Mac PowerPC!  This just goes to prove that it’s not time to turn off our machines just yet…

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
