    Hi, i was surfing through the web and i end up in some shockwave addons...
    I wanted to install shockwave and on he official site says that its only avaible with rosetta emulation.

    Im new to Mac OS X. Just a couple of days.
    Its rosetta a good way to start a program, just because it can run shockwave?
    There is any other way to use shockwave?

    I have a MacBookPro 4,1 2.4Ghz.
    Mac OS X 10.5.2
    I usually use Firefox or Safari

    As of now there is no build of Shockwave to work with Intel machines. Rosetta is a built in program that allows for intel machines to run PPC programs inside the intel machine. The program will be slower than they would be normally, but they still work decently.

    You will have to start Safari up with Rosetta by pressing command-i and check the box that says open up with Rosetta.
