My personal favorite of the browsers that are still supporting PowerPC is Roccat. And version 4.0 was released today! Isnt it nice, that even now in 2014, theres still a few folks out there that still care about PowerPC and the people that still use them? Thank you, to whomever you are. It is appreciated!:D

I personally never used Roccat but will check it out.

it is a great browser. generally speaking i prefer tenfourfox as i find it to be a bit more stable but roccat is very fast and handles flash related stuff great.

I tried Roccat on my computer and it does not work. Website said it works with 10.5 and later, i have 10.10.

Here is a piece of the crash
Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000020

I doubt that Roccat has had time to test for Yosemite.

This update is a dud for me. Links don't open on webpages and tabs no longer work.

For me Roccat 4.2 is working quite well in Yosemite (noticed a few bugs which i've reported to them - 4.2 claims "Basic Yosemite support" which suggests they'll refine it further in the next versions :)

On 10.5.8 why does Roccat 4.2 not render facebook? Only the blue upper bar appears and the rest of the site stays white. Strange. :)

On 10.5.8 I've struggled with Roccat on my G5, it tends to hang or slow down terribly. A shame as when it works it is pretty good but just too unreliable.

I do love Roccat, but unless you relink it against Leopard WebKit, it's going to use the stock WebKit with the OS. To its credit, though, it has several features I wish Apple would have put into Safari for 10.5.

As for Facebook/Twitter woes, bookmark the mobile site. Much less clutter and crap.

Roccats 4.1 and 4.2 would not open a browser window for me. A quick email to support and a reply within hours and now 4.3b1 is running fine so far. I would prefer traditional tabs, though.

I prefer the VisiTabs personally (especially on the side as saves so much vertical screen estate and you get a preview of the websites in the tab making it so easy to find things!)

But you can have traditional tabs -

Go:
"View - Show Tab Bar" to show tab bar

"View - VisiTabs" to hide VisiTabs

(I recommend relaunching Roccat after setting this though)

It's kinda ironic that they can build a web browser but not a decent webpage :p
