A friend with a stock original Bondi iMac recently asked for browser advice. I haven't used OS9 in a very long time and won't be much help.

IIRC I downloaded the OS9.2.2 update along with Netscape 4.x (or similar) for him a couple years back (I'm on broadband, he's on dialup). He's noticed that more and more sites complain about his browser recently. Is there a recent browser for OS9.2.2 that is more compatible and stable? Also, are there recent browser/OS9 plugins that he needs to add? thanx......joe

I searched Mozilla.org and found v1.2.1 for MacOS9. Is this the latest most stable version for OS9? Any OS9/Mozilla plugins needed (maybe shockwave or java)?

Thanx....joe

You can try iCab (www.icab.de) the guy even supports 68K Macs, check his site, once iCab reaches the 3.0 version, itīll be so far the best option for your friend.

IE 5 is still a good browser. Netscape 7 also exists, and it's basically the same as Mozilla.
