    I have a Mac version OSX 10.5.8. There hasn’t been any updates available for a while and I cannot update the browsers I currently use (Safari , Firefox).

    I need a compatible browser which uses TLS 1.2 , since my bank’s website no longer accepts TLS 1.1 protocol or lower.

    Are there any browsers compatible with OSX 10.5.8. and offer TLS 1.2 protocol?

    Thank you in advance

    Very low security with that vintage of the OS. Many would advise you not to do banking with such an outdated OS and the browsers it will run.

    What model is your Mac? In particular, is it a PowerPC Mac?

    If so, you might be able to run TenFourFox:

    To download it, you'll probably need to use the TenFourFox Downloader.

    MacRumors has an entire forum for PowerPC Macs:

    If you have other questions about a PowerPC Mac, posting there will be more visible to members who can quickly answer.

    If your Mac isn't a PowerPC Mac, then you'll be better served by upgrading to a newer OS version. At that point, newer browsers with TLS 1.2 will run.

    Unless you're dirt poor, perhaps it's time to start shopping for a new (or at least, "newER") Mac...
