Hi,

I got a Mac G4 running OS X 10.2.8.

The last update brought me Safari 1.0.3. The system also has Internet Explorer 5.2.

I have tried installing the latest version of Firefox, but the system complains it can't find some package manifest or something along that line.

Is this G4 now junk ? I just need it for surfing and need a newer browser more compatible with the latest html standards. In Safari 1.0.3, some websites don't display well.

Found it - Opera 9.64 works on Jaguar 10.2.8. released some time 2009.

Can't believe that Apple would leave its users out of a modern browser when they have an older machine. G4 is still reasonably fast for general use like word processing and surfing.

Are you able to upgrade Safari at all? I'm running 5.0.3 on OS X 10.6.6
