The PSU of my main computer died and I had to reactivate my old iMac G5... This is the moment when you feel lucky knowing this app: it became a blessing! It’s way faster than its nearer competitor TenFourFox. It lacks useful extensions such as uBlock Origin and uMatrix, but the old version of Ghostery is behaving well enough. Some sites with embedded audio and video players won’t work, but you can play Youtube quite all right, if you’re not running any other hungry program. Thanks again, Tobias! :-)

There are still updates (current being 604.5.6 r226588) but you have to dig into the repository to get the last one: https://sourceforge.net/projects/leopard-webkit/files/604/Leopard/PowerPC/ I wonder why the Download button on the main page still points to version 603.3.3, is it because the others are considered beta/rc? Or is it just an oversight? Anyway, they work perfectly! I'd say version 604.5.6 is actually better than 604.4.5 (there was a 20% CPU footprint that remained for a long while, now it's gone).

It's very nice to have the latest webkit running on my old G5, but what an irony that no one is doing the same job for 10.6 or 10.9...

The REALLY last 10.6 and Intel-compatible version is available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/leopard-webkit/files/537/%28Snow%29%20Leopard/ It's r171822 (537.78.2_4). As after Safari 5.1, webkit2 is completely different, the dev is now only working for 10.5.

In my experience, it's not easy to tell, between Safari and any subsequent Webkit version, if one works best, but very recently I found that some website was not rendering properly with Safari<v5.0.5 and Leopard WebKit fixed it! So thanks a lot Tobias! :-)

I'm having trouble updating the security certificates (a most useful feature from this release, let me add): administrator$ /Applications/Leopard\ webkit\ system\ wide/update\ system\ certificates.command ; exit; Please read the Readme before proceeding with this! Do you really want to replace the original system security certificates with the ones from OS X 10.9 (Y/N)? y In case you are prompted to enter a password, please enter the super user password Password: ditto: can't get real path for source ditto: can't get real path for source ditto: can't get real path for source ditto: can't get real path for source Password: logout [Process completed] ???? If I look at keychain I have 2 system root certificates (are not trusted) that start in 2012 and end in 2032, is this supposed to be like this?

If this really supports Snow Leopard, that is a great contribution. Kudos and applause for the developer. Apple has long abandoned updates to Safari to run on 10.6, while lots of third party browsers continue to support it. This lack of continued support, is probably one reason to avoid using Safari. However, it seems that there are separate downloads for separate Leopard and Snow Leopard versions. So, one wonders if maybe there ought not be a separate MacUpdate page for the Snow Leopard version? Currently, the MacUpdate download link seems to give one a Leopard only download. http://sourceforge.net/projects/leopard-webkit/files/ has the various OS specific installers. All of the downloads in the 600, 538 folders, say they are for Leopard Power PC. However, the 537 folder does have a mixture of Leopard and Snow Leopard installers.
