Web Browser Shiira for Mac PowerPC

During my morning research, I found a great browser called Shiira.  It’s a Japanese open source that was working out very well for PowerPC/Intel  users until recently.  Unfortunately, our Japanese PowerPC friend decided to discontinue this project in 2009 (after 5 years of life), which is too bad because Shiira had a lot of potential as a fast and simple browser, but seemed to also have a lot of bugs to work out.  The last version released was 2.3 and the developer’s site is not online anymore but if you would like to check this browser out, you can download from the link here:

* Shiira (2.3) https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/15032/shiira (Runs on Tiger or later.  You also can check this site: http://sourceforge.jp/projects/shiira/

If you take a minute to review some of the comments, you will notice that there are some disappointed people, but there is also a member who is using Shiira as his default browser on a PowerBook G4 running Tiger and he is pretty happy with the performance.  Well, the only way to find out what YOU think is to download it and do your own test drive.  Right now, the most important thing for me to find is ANY software that supports PowerPC!  This will make me, and all my readers, very happy!
