Here's the link to Webkit, as MisterKeeks said, it is a good Safari alternative and based off of Webkit like Safari, but it's faster and still receiving updates while Safari for PPC hasn't been updated since version 5.

I'm glad to hear it. While you're at it, zen at PowerPC Liberation has a very good post about which browsers to try: http://powerpcliberation.blogspot.co...ssessment.html

While some of his content is a little controversial, this is one of his better posts.

Thanks I will buy some right now
It can handle even more. I just edited a full HD 1080 video with iMovie and encoded as 1080 HD video in less than 20 minutes. Not so fast but it was easy

I got my 2GB RAM (2x 1GB sticks) from NewEgg for $50 and it shipped same day and worked perfectly.

Don't think so little of your PowerBook. It's a great machine that can handle a lot more than just emails. Enjoy it.

Congrats! I too just got a Mactop, an iBook G4 1.42 maxed out with 1.5 gigs of ram.

Newegg is great, and OWC ( Other World Computing ) specializes in Mac stuff.
