PowerPC’s which won’t run OSX reached their limit with OS9. A lot of these machines still work well and are capable of getting on to the Internet, but the problem is finding a suitable WebBrowser. Nothing seems to work with OS9 any more. But hang on – we found a couple which are free to download:

Classilla is a free, open source browser for Mac OS 9

Classilla is bringing back web browser support to your classic Macintosh — built on WaMCom, a port of Mozilla to classic Macintosh systems, using the same technology underpinning the popular Firefox browser. It’s completely free and it’s open source, and it’s standards-compliant. Use it without cost or restriction; or, if you’ve got the skills, hack it and make it your own. Classilla brings your wonderful old Power Macintoshes back to life and back online.



WaMCom 1.3.1

WaMCom – Web and Mail Communicator – is an open source software project, providing modified versions of Mozilla™ client software.




   iCab – Internet Browser




iCab 3.0.5 works with Mac OS 8.5 – 9.2.2


At least webpages should display much better than trying to use that old Mac version of Internet Explorer!
