I am updating an Imac Trayload G3-333 (Summer 1999) with no Firewire port.
After maxing out the memory at 512 megs, and installing Jaguar to the original 6 G hard drive I logged into my Earthlink DSL account.
(I will use the original drive as OS only, and a USB 1 enclosure for the other stuff since it is not my main machine.)
Thinking that the Intel based Macs are the only ones truly designed to run Windows and OSX, I doubt I ever have both OS X and Windows on the old Imac, or an Emac my wife uses.
That begs the question" What browsers are/could be used on the Internet in place of non-existant future revisions to Mac IE?
[My Yahoo email account kept locking up in Internet Explorer 5.1, and M$ is not updating IE for Macs anymore anyway.
I used Netscape OK, and I have a PC w/ Win XP Pro. So I do have asscee to my mail and the Internet OK. But ...]
I am wondering what Mac Internet browsers do best [better?] to open webs designed to be accessed primarily through later PC versions of IE.
[Also, I have a client that was using Safari to access her Smartmail acct. until the mail hosting service provider changed to a later version of their hosting software. That new enterprise software they selected does not support Safari. [Bummer] She then was able to use the Mac version of Internet Explorer to open and use her Smartmail acct.]
Realizing that in time probably even IE for Mac will not be supported by the Smartmail and other mail providers as M$ changes the PC versions of IE over the years, I have to wonder (and ask) if there is a "replacement" or "enhanced" browser that Mac Users are/will be migrating to in place of IE on pre-Intel based Macs.
Your thoughts/experiences/ideas would be helpful.
