Questions for Mac Owners

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
What is a good and free antivirus program that supports OS X 10.4.11 in my sig. Also what internet browsers have support for OS X 10.4.11? I'm new to Macs and picked the one up in my sig for cheap just to play around with, so I don't know much about it yet.

Welcome to mac, you don't need an antivirus. Just enjoy a spam free computer lifestyle. There was some talk about a virus finally coming though to mac but I don't think many were actually infected. Obscurity is security, although that may change in the coming years.

Not trying to stir a Mac vs PC debate, they both have their strong points I have both and prefer mac for fluid, stress free OS usage and PC for gaming and hardware flexibility.

TenFourFox is the best you are going to get if you want a modern browser to run on something that old.
