Here is a cool application to have on your PowerPC! PandoraMan is a small application to run the Pandora mini player using WebKit. Now you can quit Camino, Safari, etc without killing your music stream.
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.
Yeah Yeah Yeah!, let’s re-revisit our favorite kind of apps, and if you thought that “re-revisited” is in regards to Metallica’s record Garage Days you are right. In this post we will introduce you to some browsers that we did not check out before. They’re very promising and will help you in your day-by-day browsing. I’m really sorry that we don’t have Google Chrome available for the PowerPC platform and I don’t think we ever will. So let’s appreciate projects like those listed here and others like TenFourFox, AuroraFox, SeaMonkey, etc.
*OmniWeb (5.11.2) Free – http://www.omnigroup.com/products/omniweb/overview/ (Tiger 10.4/Leopard 10.5) – It’s a very interesting browser, which is light to run. It’s very powerful, it’s fast and the most important thing is that they are still doing all the updates for either PowerPC and Intel. In OmniWeb you can find features such as WorkSpaces, Visual Tabs, Ad Blocking, etc. Installing this browser in your Mac will definitely be a benefit for you. I personally really like the idea of being able to show and hide the tabs. It’s pretty cool and very easy to browse.
*Leopard WebKit – (Free) – http://www.webkit.org/ / http://code.google.com/p/leopard-webkit/ (Leopard 10.5) – This is their own statement “The goal of this project is to provide builds of current WebKit sources for Mac OS X 10.5 (PowerPC only). The built product comes with no support and is provided only for testing purposes.” Well now, it’s up to you if you want to use this very promising project !
