Old Browser Rendering and Downloading

I finally gave up on the idea of using my OS 9 browser to go on the Internet. I found that Netscape had the best rendering out of all the browsers here but it still has it's limitations, and if you use it you know what they are. Downloading outside of the Garden is sometimes down right aggravating for old browsers sometimes so searching for another option was optimal for me. After doing some searching I found out that you can use iPhone, iPad, and iPod as a wireless USB disk. I bought an App called Phone Disk for my iPhone. It essentially turns the device into a file server and Internet downloader when connected to a wireless network. It can very easily be configured as an HTTP or FTP server. I left the port number blank for HTTP so that only FTP could be used. It works great with Fetch 3 and I'm sure other versions and FTP clients will work also. It works flawless for me. An excellent buy for 99 Cents

Have you tried Classilla? This is a modern browser and works fine, as long as the websites don't contain too much Flash...

I second that. I use Classilla quite a lot and it works just fine. You can download it here: http://code.google.com/p/classilla/

There is also an article over on wikipedia with more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classilla

Cool thanks for the tip, I will give it a try. I still like the iPhone app though it's nice for loading large pictures singularly through FTP instead of using a thumb drive or camera card and waiting for the whole batch to load.
