Before I start this post, yeah, it's been nearly a year since I posted anything on ADISC, I've taken a bit of a break from the site to sort some things out, I'll probably post like a 'life update' post or blog later on, things are pretty cool Anyway, back to the post. Today I powered on my old PowerMac G4 Digital Audio from 2000 and logged into ADISC. I've had various versions of OS X on here over the years but at the moment it's rocking Mac OS 9.2.2, and I decided to show everyone what it's like browsing ADISC on a 16 year old Mac with an operating system that's received no updates since 2002.

For web browsing I'm using an awesome little piece of software called Classilla, the name is a combination of Mozilla and the 'Classic' Mac OS. The browser itself is basically a heavily patched version of Mozilla 1.3.1 (the last version of Mozilla to run on Mac OS 9) and is an attempt to bring a modern browser to OS 9 and even though it still has a long way to go (most updates being released at the moment are concerning updating security protocols etc. and it still struggles to render most pages) it's pretty much awesome Anyway, enough ranting, this is how it renders a few pages:

The homepage (and proving I'm using OS 9):

As you can see it renders everything pretty readably, the only major thing I notice is that the pages load a bit slowly, and that's a combination of my internet speed and the layout of the pages being a bit of a struggle for the 466MHz CPU ^_^ Oh and one other thing I noticed while attempting to post this thread on the mac, I can't see the buttons to post images.. but that's a pretty minor problem Anyway, hope some of you guys at least found that somewhat interesting, feel free to ask me questions about the browser or other pages etc.
