    Would second this -- you can find links to both at Version Tracker. I used iCab quite a bit in my 9.2 days and while it's not going to be blazingly fast, it's going to be your best bet.

    You could also use Netcape 7.0.2 -- it'll give you results equal to what you're getting with IE 5.1.

    i would disagree ns 7.0 is equal to ie 5.1

    but yes, icab 3.03 is a huge improvement from its earlier version, much more standard compliant now. its probably better than opera since opera only has version>=7 for os9.

    Thanks

    Thanks very much for all your help. I've downloaded and installed iCab. It seems to be working very well - better than IE 5.1. Thanks for a great start to the New Year. Happy New Year to you all.
