I still use Safari 3.0.4 and Firefox 3.6.28 I think between the two of them I have yet to encounter a web page that won't work. Mind you I don't do heavy duty video streaming and I haven't visited every web site out there.
Other have had success with Tenfourfox I use too many old Firefox extensions that TFF broke so I don't use it much. Since it is a port of Mozilla you can't run TFF and FF at the same time, but I can run Safari and FF at the same time.
The "latest versions" of most software that will run on a PPC Mac are several generations out of date anyway. Pretty much everybody only develops for Intel Macs now. I figure if my old versions work, why fret about having the newest all the time?

I may have to just settle for what I have but I want to just make the most of it until i get an ipad or something else newer.
Not needed my laptop much over the last couple of years but using it loads at the moment building websites etc and its nice to be able to check them on newer browsers etc.

The one suggestion I can make is update your computer to 10.5.8. It is possible you may find a still-old but intermediate update which will work under 10.5.8.
Mac OS X 10.5.8 Combo Update - http://support.apple.com/downloads/Mac_OS_X_10_5_8_Combo_Update - extra note about repairing permissions after update: https://discussions.apple.com/message/9968141

Many thanks, looks like that will be the newest update I can do and it also comes with an update on Safari.
Just need to get the space on my hard disk now
