    Does anyone know where it is still available for download?

    I am trying to access a site, (www.thomson.co.uk), I have tried it in safari, opera... and firefox but none of them work. I tried it in on my parents iMac which has IE on and it works fine, but I come to download it and find it's gone!

    Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance :)

    I was able to go to the site in Safari, but it did seem to try and continually reload. I then told Safari (via the Debug menu) to act like Windows IE 6.0, and everything seems to work fine.

    To enable the Debug menu, quit Safari and open a Terminal window. Type

    defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1

    and press Enter. Quit Terminal and relaunch Safari. You now have a Debug menu. Go to Debug > User Agent to tell it what to "look like" to the site you're browsing.

    It works fine in Camino 1.0 pretending to be Firefox 1.5 for Mac, and Safari....
