Old Mac needs browser. I know it is not the best, but what is the version number of Firefox that will run on PowerPC. This is the last model and the highest OS for PowerPC. If you know where to download the most recent (haha) version of any browser that will run on this machine, please let me know that also. Many sites that say they can download old Safaris versions no longer function, just zombie pages.

Hi Whyaduck

Mozilla no longer supports the PowerPC, the last version of Firefox that runs on PowerPc is Firefox 3.6.28, but that has been discontinued.

see this article for more details. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-no-longer-works-mac-os-10-4-or-powerpc

For an unofficial Firefox 45 ESR compatible version that runs on a PowerPC Mac with OS X 10.4 or 10.5 you can look at TenFourFox FPR.
