G3 & G4 tips and tricks
Just bought a G3 700mhz and a G4 tower 450mhz. They aren't terribly slow but slow enough to where I want to clean them up a little bit. I have the free version on cocktail and XSlimmer (which only allows up to 50mb of defrag capabilities).
I know that Macs "never need to be defragged" but I am just wondering if there are free tools comparable to XSlimmer?
Im running 10.4.11 so would running a software update help out at all?
Just wondering, thanks to anyone who answers.

After you run Trim The Fat, check out the G4 optimized MPlayer in this thread, and you should definitely check out TenFourFox, a specifically tuned version of Firefox for G3 and G4 Macs. And you should also look into MacTubes to play Youtube videos better.
I don't know how much video you'll be able to play on those older Macs, but TenFourFox is an excellent browser for them.
