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.
