    I'm trying to troubleshoot as to why a friend's laptop suddenly isn't allowing her to run a browser. I have sent her over the latest versions of Safari, Firefox and Flock, but none of them worked.

    Then she told me she's running OS 9.

    OS9 is way before my Mac time, so where would I start?! What browser is OS9 compatible?!

    You can also look at www.versiontracker.com by OS version to see what will work.

    What machine is she playing with, must be a really old PPC laptop, an old G3 iBook?

    iCab was a beauty for OS 9, and just for the heck of it I occasionally boot the G3 from its OS 9 drive and browse with iCab, just to remind myself.
