This version includes the libraries libstdc++ and libgcc which are unique to the MacPorts GCC 4.7 compiler which I use. Took some doing to modify the Make system to get them to get the libraries in the right directories and adjust the internal search paths accordingly but it all works. I’ve checked it out on a pristine 10.5.8 G4 Powerbook so it should be a go for those who have had problems with not having the correct libraries in particular libstdc++. I’m not sure why many others haven’t had problems or maybe they just didn’t report it and gave up on SeaMonkey but I hope they’ll give this a try and will get the G4 out of the closet and online ! I hope to see some feedback both bad ( hopefully not now ) and good under Issue 19 https://code.google.com/p/seamonkey-ppc/issues/detail?id=19 Take the usual precautions ! Backup your profile. Enjoy Thanks for your Support and help spread the word.
A while ago we mentioned Browsers for PowerPC in few of our posts. We also mentioned a few updates from those Browsers, because we believe it is important to have applications updated as much as possible. Here is our list of recently updated Browsers, which are probably the Big Four for PowerPC, these days.
I’ve got some good news for your PowerPC machine! Recently (08/28/12) we got a new update for SeaMonkey that is very “very” helpful for all PowerPC users because it keeps our Macs up to date! Thumbs up for SeaMonkey and I hope to see this project advancing to further support the PowerPC world! Show them some love guys, they’re basically all we have left!
If you got a little bit excited by this, you can download the 2.12 Beta 2 as they encourage testers and will be more than happy for you to discuss and report problems you may encounter, as they work to improve their product.
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:
