Hi All,

I have a Mac OS 8 and am a newbee to Mac.

I downloaded Netscape 7.1 and mozilla7.0 .dmg.dz files. I unzipped it using stuffit and got the .dmg files. Now I am not able to install the browsers... How do i proceed with the .dmg files?

Thanks in advance.

Forget it. Netscape 7.1 isnt going to work for OS 8 anyway. Neither will Mozilla past version 1.2.1.
DMG files are disk images for OS X and arent meant for OS 7, 8, or 9.

Your best bet for a supported browser under OS 8 is probably iCab, which I think requires OS 8.6.  You can download iCab from www.iCab.de ; you will find a fairly rabid user group for it on Yahoo Groups as well.  iCab is in ongoing, though slow, development; right now it still lacks CSS 2 support, so a few web pages format funny, though the info is OK.  If you're really stuck for a browser I have a copy of Netscape v4.07 (yikes) stashed away somewhere, which I think ran even under OS 8.1. But of course it is not a modern browser.
