    Just to let everyone know, the Roccat browser has been updated from 4.9 to 5 and still supports PPC :)

    How does it compare to TFF? Never used Roccat.

    Roccat is built off Webkit. Think of Safari, but with social (Facebook, Twitter) plugins.

    LOL, i had a look but just wondered if i really need yet another browser.

    Thanks, hate Safari so maybe i don't have to worry too much. If i unpack my Powerbook i may give it a go.

    Looks like it just uses the same implementation of Webkit that stock Safari uses, which is getting quite outdated. I recommend using Leopard Webkit and a newer version of WebKit instead.

    I hate Webkit in ALL it's forms on every platform it runs on. I have been and always will be a Mozilla user.

    That said, there are some Webkit based browsers I will use based on a particular purpose. Safari for Youtube and Facebook if T4Fx is not behaving. For quick searches I will use Stainless or Sunrise.

    There is ONE Webkit browser I DO like however and that is Demeter. Unfortunately, Demeter, which in my opinion is the fastest web browser ever, had development cut short and was left in a buggy state. It crashes most of the time. Kind of like a tempermental foreign sports car.

    Thankfully i don't need facebook and Youtube works fine on my phone if i really need to go there. My PPCs serve as eyecandy when the dull computers of today get too much. (Although,If they ever do a tangerine Macbook i may be tempted) ;)
