I have added the updates that I have copies of - the latest QuickTime for Jaguar is 6.5.3 I believe (not 6.5.2), I have a copy but cannot find it available for download any more to add a link.

Great. :) I found a mirror of the updates hosted at ftp.iinet.net.au here and have added Java 1.4.1 Update 1, Safari 1.0.3 and Graphics Driver Update 1.0 to the list.

Maybe you can host QuickTime 6.5.3 somewhere.

No, unfortunately. :(
I see – I get the same when using the site's "Download" button. What works for me (in Firefox 61.0.2) is right-clicking on the image, selecting "View Image" so it opens in another tab and then right-clicking to "Save Image As". That gives me a one-megabyte file called 310179.jpg.

Yes! In Safari, right click, then "Save Image As" worked for me!

Thank you so much, this is beautiful. <3

Added a list of systems that Jaguar will run on despite being unsupported, along with the machine-specific caveats.

On running Jaguar on an iBook G4, is it only for the very first 2003 model or does it extend to other models?
I have personally tested Jaguar on the original (2003) 12-inch iBook G4. Since the 2004 models have the same GPU, it's possible that Jaguar works on these as well. The 2005 model has a different GPU and drops the ADB-connected trackpad for a USB one, so I'd expect issues on that model (I should give it a try since I have one of those).

After some testing, I've been unable to get Jaguar to boot on the 2005 iBook G4, but maybe someone else will have better luck
