    RE my comparison of Mac OS and *nix roots - that's what I get for not fact checking before I post! Sorry for the misinformation.

    I did try it a couple of years ago on my 2008 Mac Pro ( when I had that before I sold it , sigh ) and seemed really good, am pretty sure it was sea monkey, if not will post back as am sure there was another web browser that I enjoyed using on OS X

    Will have a look around and confirm if it was sea monkey or not

    Perhaps it was Camino since that was a popular lightweight browser (before it was discontinued last year)?

    Have you tried Sleipnir?

    Sea Monkey is good, and if I remember rightly it has a built in web page editor which can be handy. Sea Monkey is basically an older looking, stripped version of Firefox.

    How I remember the days of... Netscape Navigator.... And also anyone use the one that was on 98/ME... it was bundled with MSN ?

    To be fair on my machine now I have Chrome which is my main browser, I also have Firefox on my machine for testing those sites that have broken but Chrome tells me are working when they are not... and Avant simply because the CCTV system here uses IE for it's web interface and I refuse to use IE - Hate it with a passion.

    Not since I was about 17 and it installed itself automatically one day...

    Navigator 4 was my go-to browser for years.

    Maybe it was Camino - I remember it had an expose type over view of the websites you had visited, similar to what Safari on Mac used to do

    486DX2/50. 8mb Ram. 300Gb Hard - compressed. Windows 95. And ^ this. On a 14.4kbps US Robotics Dial.

    Anyone want to guess how slow that computer was

    Also had CompuServe for a while (before they were consumed by AOL). That was a pretty good network/bbs/community.

    I thought it was 300mb compressed, 10gb and 30gb hard drives were massive back then If I remember correctly, so 300gb would have been lots !!!

    And yet I bet it still ran faster than my hans 10 year old Dell...
    just for the record this dell had two spiders dead inside the case and so much dust it's unreal, though she refuses to buy a new one. Takes 18minutes to login!
