Hi all,

This is from last year but it shows how we can still browse some useful sites with our older browsers.

Check out this youtube video

Thanks again for this link OldAmigan! I have 5 PPC macs and it was certainly a bummer when TFF was canned. This link just opened up a whole new updated PPC world for me! I didn't know about InterWebPPC. Looks like there's all kinds of PPC development still going on!

After spending months and googling my arse off, still can't get Mac System 7.5.x (with all the updates) to print to my hp laserjet 1320n networked postscript printer. Any success stories out there?

@Amiga4000

Well, NetSurf renders most web pages pretty well, but its a lot of images, its lot of crap, and JS scrips, I had feeling using FrogFind, made pages easier to read, less notice and distraction.

Cant you print to file, and copy the file over to amiga print postscript from there?

With AmigaOS4.1 & Basilisk II, you copy & past the text between the two operating systems.

@NutsAboutAmiga

Yea, could do. Never tried it. I would really like to print to the printer directly. However, I found a possibility in these two posts.

68K Macintosh and a Modern Printer

What is LPR, and how do I set it up on the Mac?

I think I set it all up correctly... when I print from a text doc, it seems to send the output to the IP address but then nothing happens. I'll tell ya one thing, AppleTalk messes with my mind! Actually, AppleTalk shouldn't have anything to do with the process.
