These are released "as-is" with the hope that they will be useful.
As such, there is no warranty of any kind.
 
If i never decide to update these again you can always use White Star or Chromium Legacy or Firefox Legacy on 10.7 and above. This version uses patches from parrotgeeks Firefox legacy.

  1. Great.
    Too bad that even in this browser it is not possible to adjust the (annoying) line spacing between the favorite folders. I have a lot of favorites and a 27-inch screen isn't enough to hold the folders.
    Well instead with Artic Fox.

    1. It's a known issue with the 10.6 version. You can still modify the advanced preferences via about:config if you need to.

  5. Excellent work! I may yet get another eighteen months out of this 2007 Mac Mini, saving resources, doing a bit less damage to the planet. All the best from Co Donegal, Ireland.

  6. This is by far the best browser for Mac OS X SnowLeopard!
    Please - I want to donate!
    Ironically - I have to use an older Version of Chromium (remember, I'm running SnowLeopard) to comment

  7. Okay, now with Interweb 60.9.2 this site is working - only google tells me: "Your browser is not supported anymore. Please update to a more recent one." so, again, I have to use chromium (Version 49.0.2623.112)

    1. Glad you find it useful. You may want to try a different user agent to get some of googles services to play nice. Easiest way is with a user agent switcher extension. Otherwise poke around in about:config.

    2. For instance, in about:config, change "general.useragent.override" to: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.77 Safari/537.36
      This allows me to post here using snow leopard.

  8. Tryed it, and...
    ...it worked.
    Many thanks. Oh, and I'm serious: I want to donate - how can I?

    1. Appreciate the offer, but since i based these browsers off of free open source software i don't feel it'd be right to accept donations. Keeping old hardware usable and out of landfills is all i really wanted.

  10. Great work as usual. Thank you. I have just installed the new release. I use it beside ArcticFox for site that AF doesn't open entirely (arte.tv for exemple). I just wonder how to put it in french with an xpi file.

    1. I just added a link to some common language packs and dictionaries. Please let me know it they work for you.

  11. Hello Wicknix,

    French "fr.xpi" works fine after dealing with "about:config" and restart.
    Thanks!

  12. Thank you for all your work on up to date browsers for snow leopard. I especially like interweb with foxpep added.
    I am trying to use wowfunhappy's https proxy with interweb, but there are no network settings available to set proxy to "no".
    Can you tell me what I need to change to about:config to do this?
    Thanks

  13. Sure. Set "network.proxy.type" to 0 (zero)

  14. Great job, thanks!
    A few weeks ago, my bank decided not to full support the Firefox in my old Macbook. After I found your browser, the banking works fine now, thanks again!

  15. Loaded this onto my old OG 2006 Macbook which I lovingly maintain and am extremely happy with the results. I was having a hard time finding a modern 32-bit 10.6 browser and here it is. Thank you!

  16. Hi. I was searching for a browser for my old Powerbook and I found it. Looks great, but I want to install the spanish language pack, Can you explain me how to do that?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. I don't use language packs or dictionaries. Maybe somebody who does can help. However i think its as simple as drag n drop the .xpi on to an empty browser window to install it, then change language in the preferences.

    2. Thank you very much for your work. The browser works perfect!

  17. Hi, I noticed in the latest InterWeb that the "Advanced" tab in Preferences doesn't work. Even trying about:preferences#advanced doesn't do anything.

    Is this a bug or ...?

    1. Yeah, known bug that i haven't been able to trace yet. All those settings are still accessible via about:config though.
