    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

    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 -

    "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

    I like the new website of Roccat...

    But the older design was good too...

    Roccat is my second browser. My first option is Seamonkey always.

    What is Roccat based off of? (i.e. Mozilla, WebKit, etc.)

    It is based off of WebKit.
