    Hi, I'm the proud owner of a well-running Mac LC 580 All-In-One. Recently, I decided to go on an adventure to run the Internet on it. Why? Just because... Anyway, I installed an Ethernet adapter into the computer. I'm sure the card works fine and that it installed on the computer correctly. However, I'm not sure that I can still surf the web due to the lack of an Internet browser or proper configuration. I have AT&T High-Speed DSL. The LC 580 is running Mac OS 8.0. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. :apple:

    There's always Netscape:
    From the bottom of the wikipedia page there's this link to the ftp:
    ftp://ftp9.netscape.com/pub/

    Following the folders:

    Communicator ---> English ---> there are loads of versions.

    I haven't tried any though, but there are downloadable files.

    It has been a while, but the last time I needed a browser on MacOS 9 I used WaMCom. It is a hacked-up build of and old version of the Mozilla browser (before it started to be called Firefox), and it probably the most modern browser available for MacOS 9. Actually, you might want to look at iCab 3 (note, this is not the lastest version of iCab, and there is possibly a cost).

    68k, FTW!

    iCab by far is probably the best browser around for 68k Macs.

    If I remember correctly, you'd probably be stuck with Netscape 4.08 which doesn't render much of anything properly these days.
