    Anyone know which is the last (newest) version of webkit that plays nice with PPC Fluid?

    Have you considered TenFourFoxBox? It uses the installed version of TenFourFox so it gets updated with each TenFourFox update. As a result the "app" is both safer and smaller than Fluid.

    And much slower to launch, 4 dock bounces compared to 1 with fluid.
    I have and use both of these apps.

    Personally I wouldn't exchange security for 3 dock bounces. But I respect that each of us have different needs and desires. Good luck with webkit and fluid.

    Good point, and neither would I, hence my query about the latest webkit update.

    A few (hopefuly helpful) tips, Fluid uses the default WebKit framework installed on your system aka: the same one Safari uses. The current version of Leopard-Webkit (600.8.10) was built on October 07, 2015. There are security updates available (on the Leopard-Webkit sourceforge site) dated December 11, 20 2015 - they are supplied in source code, not a DMG. Even with the December update Webkit wouldn't be up to date, the current version of Webkit is rev 198473 built March 20, 2016.

    Based on the above information no updates are needed to Fluid and the most recent version of Leopard-Webkit is outdated.

    OP is right. Something changed with the latest release of Leopard Webkit that broke linking fluid-apps to its updated framework. I think the last version that worked for me was 600.7.7, but i can't be sure.

    I ended up getting around the problem by running the "system wide" installer for 600.8.10_2 (make a backup before doing this!). Fluid apps worked after that and it had the added benefit of speeding up the iTunes store browsing speed.
