    Well, I finally did it, I purchased 9.2.2 for my beige G3 PM. It should be here in 10 days. I know that with this "new" OS I can now run MSN Messenger and also I will have the ability to use the right click feature on my mouse and possibly the scrolling wheel on it too. I am however, curious as to what the best browser is...right now I'm using Mozilla 1.2.1 while running OS 8.6 (this is actually what I'm typing this on.) I use this computer all the time for web browsing/email checking/playing starcraft.

    I suggest iCab (head over to icons.cx for some replacement icons) or IE 5 (yuck! but its most compatible).

    lol, thats what I'm using now...

    Looks like that is what I'm gonna stick with unless the mac minis take forever to get an update. In which case the beige will see a 700mhz G4, 768mb ram and OS X.

    Netscape 7 also came out for OS 9, but the Mozilla you're using is probably better (best).

    Yeah, it probably is...I think I'll stick with it. Anyone know how to give it a different icon? It just has the stock application icon.

    I was using 8.5 on my Rev A Bondi iMac until about a month ago, when the CRT fried itself. And my browser was IE 4.5!! :eek:

    Much happier with the Mini, Safari, and Panther. :)

    I've heard Opera is good, and a lot of people rave about it. But I just haven't tried it yet. I think that when OS 9.2.2 and the rest of my stuff gets here I will probably download it and try it out. Regardless I will probably still have Mozilla on there. I like having multiple browsers to chose from even if I only use one 99% of the time.

    Mozilla would be my choice, and I love iCab. iCab also has the ability to prefilter out graphics, so it is very blind and disability friendly. Also screen reads do well with it.

    Opera's Home- 39$ for PCs, less for phones.
