I have an old white Macbook 2008 or so laptop with Leopard that still runs (bless its heart) but can't really run any recent browsers. I'd like to have it for my elderly mother to go online and do some very basic browsing.
Shop for leopard at Nordstrom.com.

After you extract the File open the new folder that appears In the folder there is another Folder called Mac OS X Leopard You don't need to open that folder Move or copy that folder to the rocketdock Skin's folder The Skins folder is found by: My computer Local dick (C:) Program Files RocketDock Skins and just put the folder in that place Now exit rocketdock and run it again Right click the dock, then select.
Is there something that will run with an older machine and still load newer pages? Firefox and Safari are not loading pages in any usable way.
Sorry I don't have any the specs here - would have to go boot it up and get them. So it's more of a general browser question. However, what I do recall is that in terms of resources, it can run leopard, possibly snow leopard although that was questionable. I do not believe it's recommended to run Lion or Mountain Lion on this machine. So it's probably as far as it will go.
Would prefer not to put any money into it, just wondering if there was a band-aid solution. It's still a decent little box; I sometimes use it for audio captures and general computing tasks when the MB Pro is tied up with an encode.
