I like Chrome as a browser, and thought that as I like it so much I’d add it to my Mac, which I use for browsing mostly, and the odd blog post like now.

Being an iBook G4, I was pretty disappointed to find that Chrome is not supported a) on my hardware and b) on my O/S (Tiger)

I suppose now that Macs are more likely to be Intel, it makes sense to not spend time developing for them, but there must be a considerable number of machines out there which are still useable, and could do with a choice of browser.

I found this article: The Best Browsers For Older Macs Running Tiger.

I have Firefox and Safari, but the above article reminded me of Camino, which I’m off to download and try out now.

So, after a bit of investigation, looks like dead batteries. MDS Battery, my favoured source for these things is quoting about £32 plus delivery, so it look like I’d better get my hand in my pocket again. Bah Humbug……
