Out of curiosity ...

What browser / computer does everyone use when accessing the garden? Modern mac / pc with up to date browsers?

Or is it the occasional 68k machine or the slightly more powerful ppc with "the latest" version of a working browser?

The question has probably been asked before, but here it is again if it has been asked ... I'm not really a pro at searching Tongue

Hi fogWraith!
Glad to hear from you again. I really was missing your (rare) input.
As for me, you may recall I´m not using cutting edge PCs, but like to keep things updated - including browsers like Safari or Firefox. So its option one here.

Clockwise occasionally posted some stats about his site, telling which browsers were used.
Anyway such stats would just tell a small part of "other" referring to Classilla, iCab and the like, I guess. Might be worth the effort to have such ratings for the Garden, if one is curious. Wink

SeaMonkey (Linux, Mac & Win) - not particularly up-to-date versions (I don't go in for auto-update features in any software or OS).

On classic Macintosh hardware, currently a Centris 660av (SSW 7.1.1) & beige G3 (Mac OS 9.1), I might use MacX 2.0 to access SeaMonkey, hosted on our gateway server. This would be infrequent tho'.

Very rarely, I will use WaMCom Mozilla on OS 9.x but its too broken to use (in the MG) for much more than browsing pages and maybe leaving comments.

I use other browsers about as infrequently, but not for accessing the MG.
