    Hey everyone,

    So I know Camino was (unfortunately) discontinued some time ago and it's becoming out-of-date. However, even my dual 2Ghz PMG5 w/8GB of RAM doesn't do well with TenFourFox, and some Macs are too old to do their best with Safari 4. (I don't use Camino on my PMG5, but I still have to use it on things like my iMac G5, since it isn't so good with TFF and got plagued with Safari 5). So anyway, I wanted to share these cool Camino builds which include optimized versions of Camino for PowerPC G3-PowerPC G5 architectures. The person who created these did a good job and even changed the color schemes of the Camino logos depending on their architecture. (G3 being green, G4/G4e being blue and grey, and G5 being red). Now, this person did make a fatal mistake: They hosted their Camino builds on FileFactory, which is a pain and you have to make an account to slowly download them. I decided to do it and downloaded all of them, not just because I have PowerPC Macs from G3 to G5, but in hopes of hosting them on a real site; In this case, I have hosted them on Mediafire. I have the link posted here! You will know if your computer is a G3 or G5, but pick the correct G4 download. G4 7450 is the newer kind. (type 'machine' in Terminal to see what your G4 processor is. "G4e" refers to the newer G4 processors). Of course, I have given the link to the original posting to give credit to the person who compiled them years ago. Enjoy!

    Have you by chance tried out Leopard WebKit?

    I use that on my PowerMac G5. I never used it on my iMac G5 because it's plagued with Safari 5 which I could never remove... However, it's stupid of me that I hadn't though of AppZapper or an application that totally uninstalls/deletes anything that has to do with the application. So, I will do that on my G5 and put Leopard Webkit on it for Safar 4, when I get the chance. As for older systems, I usually use Safari or Camino. (Camino when it comes to simple browsing).

    The problem with Camino is that is out of date.

    I realize that; I said so in the original thread post. I just decided to upload these to a much better cloud service to make them more accessible after these 7 years since they were created. Some may still want to use Camino for light browsing, as it is still fine for that. There could be many reasons, such as Safari being too slow and TFF being slow as usual. This isn't so useful now, but I wanted to liberate these files from File Factory. It's too bad that Camino is gone... this would have been a bigger deal. :(

    If you want to do light browsing on a non-supported browser, try this specific version of TenFourFox:

    24.7.0

    I am writing this post using that version and I have zero issues. As I've said elsewhere in this forum, this specific version runs very very well on multiple versions of PPC machines. It runs far better than Camino does, and I have Camino on multiple Macs to work with.

    Just my two cents.

    Even with something this old, people are still nit picky. Just like with their iPhone 6. :D

    Thanks, I will try it out. Hopefully it's not too outdated. I use Leopard Webkit on my G5, but my slower Macs could really use this...
