Firefox 4 for PPC Macs

Mozilla droped support for PowerPC processors and therefore Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger from FF4, meaning that G3, G4 and G5 users were left out in the cold, reports Tuaw.

“TenFourFox brings Firefox 4 to PPC Macs
TenFourFox takes code from Firefox 4 and tunes it for OS X 10.4 (compatible with 10.5) and the PPC-architecture. In fact, TenFourFox is offered in hand-tuned builds for each PPC processor: the G3, the G4/7400 and /7450 and, of course, the G5. With the upgrade from Firefox 3.6, you get all the JavaScript speed improvements that Mozilla rolled into Firefox 4, making it by far the fastest browser available for the PPC-Mac. You’ll also get WebM video support, access to most of the Firefox 4 add-ons and, of course, HTML5 and CSS3 support.”
