I’ve just changed some text on our download page relating to Mac OS 9 users. The old text recommended Mozilla 1.2.1; the new text says:
Due to the lack of developer interest, build machines, compilers and
testing resources, the last mozilla.org software built for Mac OS 9
was Mozilla 1.2.1, released in December 2002.
However, versions of our software that old are not recommended for
security reasons. Therefore, for Mac OS 9 users, mozilla.org
recommends iCab – which is, as far as we
know, the only graphical browser currently maintained for Mac OS 9.
After a quick discussion, the security group concluded that this was the best thing to do for Mac OS 9 users. My suggestion to them was prompted by a newsgroup message or forum post somewhere, although I’ve forgotten where it was. So if it was you who came up with the idea, thanks :-)
