    Legacy Springboards for Commercial Web Services Wiki

    The web is getting more and more bloated. Even with TenFourFox FPR 32 Intel on Snow Leopard (2.93GHz, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA 9600M GT 512MB) the modern is unusable due to how slow everything functions (even with uBlock legacy). Yes, I know there are other browser options and tweaks, but I...

    (Unpopular Opinion) I think Webkit is the way to go, not Tenfourfox..

    I am gonna start this off by saying that I know this is a very unpopular opinion, and will get hated on but I just want to share it and am open to negative criticism and feedback. I will also say that I show much appreciation to Cameron Kaiser and the contributers to TenFourFox for supporting an...

    Does YouTube Still Work in Panther? (Classilla + QuickTime)

    I don't run Panther. I watched a video demonstrating an iMac G3 going to using Classilla on Mac OS X 10.3.9 and clicking any video automatically launched a QuickTime player window without the need for Quicktime enabler. This video was uploaded in August 2018, does it still work...

    A New Browser is needed for Mac OS 9

    Just saw a poll on this forum for what OS people use on their PPC Macs and about 25% voted that they use Mac OS 9 or earlier. The only browser available for that OS (that is most modern) is Classilla and the same is true for every version of OS X under 10.4. Wikipedia said the browser has not...

    PowerPC Macs Interest Kids These Days?

    Came across this YouTube channel of a girl about 11 or 12 years old doing instructional videos on PowerMacs, TenFourFox. I guess everyone has their thing? Just want all of your opinions. Most of these machines are older than her!

    Get Netflix Working On 600mhz iMac G3/1gb ram

    How can I stream Netflix (480p or lower) on a 600mhz G3 iMac? I know Netflix supports HTML 5 video. The iMac should barely be powerful enough to stream video as the Nintendo Wii has a similar PowerPC processor and can stream video fine.

    TenFourFox - Really Slow

    When I made the Tiger Transition recently, I was really impressed with TenFourFox. Page loads were similar to LWK, and the webpages were really responsive! However, with a few weeks use, TenFourFox is really, really slow now. I find myself using Camino more and more. I have...
