You can upgrade to Tiger OS X.4 and then by soctware updates to OSX.4.11 including later Safari versions. You do not state the memory of the machine, if necessary upgrade to at least 1GB.

You will need OS X.4 full retail install DVD/CD's if the machine has no DVD ROM and do not buy grey coloured discs as they must be black.

to know if you can upgrade, you need to know the specifications of the computer. click the apple at the top, and then "about this mac". tiger (10.4) can install on a g4 with at least 256mb of ram. leopard (10.5) requires a g4 processor of at least 867mhz, and 512mb of ram.

This is the third identical post. Multiple posts on the same thread - or cross-posting - is against Forum Rules. http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/ann...nt.php?f=7&a=7

Please only post once for every problem.

We know you're just looking for an answer, but so is everyone else. Someone will eventually get to your problem, you just have to be patient.

There are a lot of people on this forum, both looking for help and providing it, so please try to keep it as uncluttered as possible.

To get to your actual issue, you can easily upgrade to 10.4 Tiger, and I'm sure most of us would recommend it. This would require you to purchase a copy of the operating system.

If you'd rather keep your current version of OS X, you might try Camino, of which the latest version supports 10.3.9. Camino is powerful, stylish, and very useful, while still maintaining a moderately "light" feel.

Again, in the long run I would still recommend upgrading to Tiger.
