Hi,

I downloaded Tenfourfox last night and hmmmm. Whereas Youtube plays mostly OK in Safari (not sure which version is on my powerbook) with click to flash installed also, Tenfourfox was useless - locking video and stuttering sound!

Is Camino worth trying instead?
QUOTE Thanks

I never cared for Camino much myself, and it fell way behind in development for a long time. I haven't used it in a few years though. Try it for yourself. It's free.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

I use Camino for all my older Macs, and in my opinion, it is the best web browser for older Macs. I can get youtube playback on my iMac G3 with it, pretty cool if you ask me.

I guess it's still light on system resources compared to the other browsers. That has been one of its strong features since I first found out about Camino. It is missing some other features found from other browsers so it never became my main browser but I do remember it being good for older Macs for the reason you have stated.
