Browsers for MintPPC/Linux Mint on PowerPC.

Hey guys,

Just wondering if there are any other browsers available for MintPPC/Linux Mint, besides Iceweasel and Midori. Preferably one that has been altivec or vector accelerated.


  • And how do I go about that. The only PowerPC system I've seen to have Firefox officially supported is Ubuntu. Otherwise there's nothing else.
  • Well I'm using a Linux Mint based system called MintPPC, but my version does not have the software center unfortunately, since version 11 crashes on boot with my system (problem with X11 drivers). I'll definitely try downloading and installing Firefox myself. Thanks!

    Honestly I have been looking at the google-chrome and firefox base, google chrome dos not have a ppc build and firefox stopped supporting ppc a while ago, but it may be possible to compile it yourself. As for other option I think they may be limited since most open source browsers are based upon firefox now.
