I stopped being able to update Firefox probably around 2 years ago on my computer, and can't download Google Chrome, all because I am running 10.4.11. I don't need to do so much on my computer...I browse the web, talk to people on skype, listen to music, watch movies, and type things up. So, my computer still is able to do everything I want it to with a good amount of speed, and only has a few periodic "old computer" symptoms. However, the inability to upgrade my browser is becoming a big problem. Gmail and facebook both inform me every time I log in that my browser is old and soon won't be supported anymore. Everything was working okay, but the last two emails I've tried to send out of firefox have not sent. I was able to send them by switching to Safari...but as the same message comes up there, I think it may be a temporary solution. Has anyone else dealt with this problem and found a working browser?
If I really can't get an updated version of any web browser, does anyone know how high I can upgrade my computer's os? I have a macbook 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. I know I might just have to bite the bullet and get a new computer...but I'm curious to know if I could stretch a little more life out of this one since it is otherwise running pretty well, and I don't need the newest, shiniest stuff.
