You've made me think about what it must be like to try old software on my machine. Hmmm....

EDIT: Done! I just ran the oldest version of Firefox I could on this machine, version 1.5.0.2 (released April 13, 2006). It's no PS1 but it'll do.

Here are a few interesting screenshots:

Evidently, Firefox doesn't trust its origin. ;)

I didn't realize that Firefox was up to date (the problems with linking to a page that is not version specific). Interesting...

Google's homepage renders okay (it is a fairly simple design after all).

Modern JavaScript is not its friend.
