However, it seems to me that it is mainly directed towards people using emulatores instead of the real hardware.
Situation here is now:
After installing MacOS 9.2.2, I feel somewhat stuck.
The IE 5 supplied with MacOS does not work well with the redirections used at the download pages.
That warning popup is just useless and annoying when MR is being accessed from a real old Mac.
Couldn't the user agent information be used to suppress that?
(The same way old Macs are specially greeted on MR and allowed SSL free connection)
Which browser on 9.2.2 is able to take these redirections correctly?
How to download that browser using IE 5, in lack of a direct link to the download?
With your help I now found that information: http://www.oldapps.com/forum/software-s ... 2-2-a.html
Going to download it on my PC (Linux) and burn a CD to get FF on my mac, to get the mac "booted" into the Web, so-to-say
Personnally, I find that CLASSILLA is the best for OS9, as per stated by the registration rule #7: https://www.macintoshrepository.org/register.php
This works perfectly fine on my DV+ iMac G3 w/ Mac OS 9.2.2: https://www.macintoshrepository.org/1770-classilla
Thank you for your hint Downloaded Classilla, will try it.
Regarding your reference to forum rule #7, I have you to tell this:
When I was setting up the old Mac, I was looking at the "Getting Started" article.
I remembered having read somewhere about a browser for 9.2.2, but didn't manage to find it again.
Well hidden... even better hidden than the link to the "Getting Started" page buried somewhere in the homepage...
Maybe it would help starters to place this kind of information more prominently?
And, another suggestion (no idea whether its good): maybe packing these essential things from StuffIt to Classilla into a single package, to get booted with just one download?
