    The headline says it all -- I just bought a G4 for my daughter for $150, and, well, you get what you pay for. It has been stripped of even the most basic programs -- including Safari. In addition, I cannot get the Cd to read much of anything. So, what's the best way (perhaps the ONLY way) to get Safari loaded onto my computer? I tried once, found a copy of Safari 1.2.3 which was zipped, downloaded the winrar software and can't get either to load. Any help would be appreciated. This is a birthday present for my daughter who comes home from her mom's TODAY.

    download from flash drive

    I'm trying to download it via my flash drive (from my pc)
    I have downloaded Safari 1.3.2.
    It is an archived folder.
    I am told Macs can automatically unarchive these folders, without winzip or whatnot.
    So, should I just copy the archived app folder into my applications folder and set archive file types to open using it?

    As long as it's the Mac version, yeah. Otherwise, you'll be unarchiving files for nothing. :p
    If that doesn't work, go to: :http://oldapps.com/
    And search for a version of Safari for the Mac. :):apple::apple:

    There's no excuse about not getting on-line unless it is a network problem. Here's why:

    1.Firefox
    2. Opera
    3. Camino
    4. SeaMonkey
    5. OmniWeb
    6. iCab
    7. Shiira

    Nobody should rely on one browser.
