So, I recently was given 30 ibook g4's with 1.42GHz and 512mb. I want them as ONLY internet devices, where students can research on the web and use google drive/slides for work.

However, I can't seem to find a browser that works. I read online that tenfourfox would, but so far it iasn't, but....

does it and i just am doing something wrong? Help?

I am a bit tech savvy so any/all advice is welcome. thanks.

    Hello, I have no experience with using Google Drive in a browser. I do use Google Docs witj TFF and it works (mostly).

    However, 512 MB RAM is the bare minimum to run TFF and won't make you happy when using Javascript heavy Google sites.
