    Re: Arctic Fox, a new web browser is available for Linux PPC

    Hello , thank you very much , this is highly appreciated!

    Hope to test this soon on a MacMini G4 with Debian Squeeze if i still get it up and running.

    Question: would it be possible to release also a i386 version of this for an older Pentium M Mobile or Pentium 4 Computer?
    ONly inhibitor for running Debian Squeeze was in fact the outdated browser.

    Will this work within a PowerPC VM?

    @xeno74:

    I was playing around a bit with the last of my running PPC units today, my iBook G4 with 656MB of RAM . . . running Lu 16.04 . . . it has a hard time with the resource demanding "web" provided by Ten4Fox . . . . From what I'm seeing in this post it looks like you are mostly using your Arctic Fox browser for 10.04 - 12.04??? Any reason to try it out in 16.04 PPC? And that would be more or less the same commands to add into repos first?? Or, something completely different? I was going to try to play with it in the iBook but the fan motor was blowing so much with a browser open that the computer becomes "overwhelmed" and "dysfunctional" . . . even Qupzilla isn't too much better . . . .

    eep
