Hey I recently got a very old iMac. I work at a place called Savers. The computer cost me $2.24. i've always loved macs but owned windows.

ANYWAYS

I need some help getting this thing running better.....

I NEED A NEW BROWSER PROGRAM!!!!!!!

Internet Explorer is garbage on my mac for some reason... im trying to download iTunes but the page never loads it stops..... the pages never load the correct way. its horrible!!!! i just upgraded the mac from 9.2.1 to 9.2.2 if someone could send me a new browser like safari...... because i tried transferring files from my PC to mac but Mac says cannot open "because the application program that created it could not be found" What ever that means....


HELP please!!!!

Oh the programs i download all look like a blank white sheet of paper on the Mac

Forget Safari and Firefox, neither work on OS 9.2.

Try this instead

Here's some more info complete with pic on WaMCom's browser. I use it exclusively on this old Mac I'm using. If nothing else, read the second-last paragraph about pages being cut off. When I discovered this and fixed it, I had to bump up the minimum font size to make it readable.

iTunes downloads with Macs work only with OS X.

Downloads from Apple's site won't. But iTunes in the machine works. You can drag or copy mp3s over to the machine and play them. The radio stations are there.

The most recent iTunes for OS 9 is 2.0.4.

What a great site! I downloaded iTunes 5 from the OS 9 list but it's a .dmg file that Expander won't open. How did you open it?
