InterWeb is a free and Open Source XUL-based web browser, featuring the well-known Firefox-style "Australis" interface and operation.

It supports a wide array of features required for the Modern Web, including advanced scripting, CSS, HTML5 and downloadable font support. It also fully supports all NPAPI plugins (e.g. QuickTime, EverNote, etc.)

32-bit Mac OS X 10.6 and 64-bit 10.7. (updated 12/12/2021) Download here

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.

  2. 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.

  7. This is by far the best browser for Mac OS X SnowLeopard!

  8. 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.

      Delete
    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.

    1. Strange. That lib *should* be linked to the browser. At any rate, to get it to work, right click on the interweb.app and choose "show package contents". Then go to the folder Contents/MacOS and copy libc++.1.dylib and libc++abi.dylib to /usr/lib.

  27. Hi, I have been using this browser for a while and noticed that YouTube and Google Drive is very slow, with Drive taking 2-3 minutes to fully load and navigation is sluggish. I am using mac os 10.7.5 on a late 2006 macbook. Is there a way to speed it up?

    1. You could use the mobile versions of those sites to speed them up. A user agent switcher extension would come in handy for this.

    1. I'm not sure about outlook attachments, but i have no issue downloading or uploading to google drive.

  33. Any idea on why wvxu.org (smattering of others, too) semi-loads, with no pics and unclickable buttons. Not Interweb's problem, other browsers same result - its gotta be osx 10.7.5 causing it. checking page source reveals not much (to me) though i dont remember seeing "brightspotcdn" before. I've switched user agent variously, no dice. I suspect this will prove un-get-aroundable. I'm pretty angry that public radio would move to such an exclusionary tech, its not as though they fixed something, its just "new look" to signal a new broom. Ah well. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not really 10.7.5's fault. You can blame google and chrome for that. The web is becoming a chrome monopoly just like the old days when every site was coded to work with IE. To get around that try chromium-legacy. It's a patched version of current chrome for 10.7-10.9. You can find it here: https://github.com/blueboxd/chromium-legacy/releases

  34. Just wanted you to know using z970mp's discovery of ytprivate.com I can get 720p youtube playback inside Interweb only using about 40% CPU. Which is pretty incredible, if you think about it. Even beats tenfivetube, but only slightly.

    My only problem is with voice.google.com. It does not recognize that I've changed the microphone permission to 'allow'. When I attempt to make a call, I get text saying to click to give microphone permission, but no link. This is with or without user agent

  37. Thanks for doing this! InterWeb is a lifesaver. But ...

    Am I crazy or was there a 64-bit build earlier? I've been using it for a while and came to check if there is an update ... now I can't see it. :(

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yeah, way back in the beginning of this project there were 64bit builds, but only because at that time it only built for 10.7 and above. Once 10.6 support came about it made more sense to just build for 32bit for greater compatibility, and 32bit makes use of more plug-ins as most are 32bit only.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the response so ... pardon my ignorance but, does that mean that this new build will work on Mountain Lion without issues? Would you recommend updating from the 64-bit version? According to the "About" page, I am currently using "2020.06.07 (64-bit)."

      Delete
    2. It should. However a lot has happened in the last year. I'd back up your current profile just in case because i can't remember if these newer builds use the same profile or if i changed that. Also you way want to look at this link for more browsers that support 10.8 as well. My suggestion would be get chromium-legacy, even if it isn't used as your main browser, because it works on "stubborn" sites.

    3. Thanks again for the response. I've tried most of those before ... that's how I found InterWeb and I must say that it is the best so far.

      It feels natural, like an old-school browser, and very snappy and smooth. Even Chromium and Firefox Legacy get a little clunky and stutter-y with some web sites -- but not InterWeb.

      So ... I'll try the 32-bit release, but please spare a thought for us fans stuck in the in-between land of modern architectures but legacy OSes. ;)

    Older woman gave me her minty 2009 macbook which had been OS upgraded a bridge too far. Fresh install of 10.6.8 and I was off to fight the battle of substandard security, ancient java and who is going to be my package manager. MacPorts and Interweb have been my rockstars.

  40. Hi, I've been a fan of InterWeb since I inherited an old black late-2006 MacBook 2.1 back in February 2021 and have been practically daily-driving it for most of my basic tasks (and also heavy duty music production). The browser is very smooth and usable but, sadly, I noticed that Google seems to have officially dropped support for Google Drive on SL 10.6.8... I haven't been able to access it for the past week (it now asks to upgrade my browser or S.O.... prior to that was working just fine). Do you think there might be a viable workaround? Or am I doomed to abandon the Drive for this machine? Thanks :)

    P.S.: currently using the latest release.

  42. Just wanted to let you know that i have been using this on my everyday 10.6.8 machine since you released it, much more stable than Arctic Fox and i love it.

    I am posting a comment to let you know that the last 2 releases 60.9.7 and .8 managed to solve a few crash problems mainly related to site video clips, however in general they are both much more crash prone than 60.9.6. They are exhibiting lots of memory leaks, with lots of entries showing up in the logs. After endless crashes with both i have gone back to 60.9.6 for now.

    If you would like log entries and urls please let me know. I would be happy to help keep this in active development, as it is a life saver for people like me who still use snow leopard as daily machines

  52. Because this application is -very- OS revision specific wicknix has two zip files out on git hub with pre compiled goodies inside. (*mac.zip and *mac64.zip). Inside the zip is a binary with some extra frosting which makes the modern web usable. The frosting = the extensions folder. Drag and drop the binary into your application place and read up on how to add plugins/extension to your browser from local files.

  57. Thank you SO much for developing InterWeb! I'm still hanging on to my 2011 iMac for freelance graphic design work as it's got the entire Adobe CS5 suite, but have been dealing with 'Your Clock is Ahead' notifications on Chrome and 'Confirm Security Exception' notifications on Firefox only for pages on both not loading. InterWeb is such a vital lifeline for all older MacUsers to keep our perfectly running machines going for just a little bit longer. I cannot thank you enough!

  58. Bandcamp appears to totally broken on 10.7.5 - I'd thought it might be universally effed due to its takeover by Epic games but reddit's BC page seems oblivious to this development. Tried all the user agents and several browsers, to no avail. View Source only tells me "play disabled" but no clue as to why. Cant login, sign up, buy music, etc. It wont even tell me it wont work. This may be the final straw, but i dont eve know what i'd have to upgarde to. AArrgghh. Thanks

    1. I'd suggest Linux as an option. You'll have a current OS with current web browsers. Or at the very least install Linux in a VM (like virtual box), and then install the latest firefox or chrome for those stubborn sites.
