TLS for Pre-Tiger Macs (and other computers) to go online!

Cameron Kaiser just shared this on the TenFourFox Blog. Might be time to take OS9 online again!

So this is what the long-rumored Classilla 9.3.4 update will be about... that's very good news!

It might well solve both of your wants. Classilla and OminWeb are likely the best candidates and it sounds like both are under review for pre-Tiger usage (OS9 & 10.0-10.3)

Just keep an eye on the link and also Classilla.org Odds are modules will be compiled in the next few months for both. Just keep in mind THIS DOES NOT FIX New Issues with CSS or Javascript. A LOT has changed in both, and TenFourFox is still your best bet on PowerPC.

I enabled TLS 1.0 and 1.1 for macgui.com so now the older browsers should be able to connect to the HTTP site.

On a side note, do you know if MacGui is ever going to fix their download links? After 10 years, it's probably a dumb question, but there are literally hundreds of items that have no other possible platform.

Mac GUI never hosted a lot of those files back in the mid-2000s, and merely linked to them. If the original site is gone and no one has a copy, then there's nothing I can do about it.

I see! I just remember when a big update came about 10 years ago, lots of links quit working.
