TenFourFox has been nothing short of a brilliant piece of software, pumping new life into our "obsolete" PPC machines. In fact, my Powerbook G4 is grateful; 867 Mhz and still running Tiger, I had no alternative. Safari has long ago stopped being useful in correctly rendering critical webpages, and when I discovered TenFourFox, I just got stuck. It was something like Christmas! Yes, TenFourFox has been a bit "slow" on my machine, but this is rather my machine's fault - and even if it weren't, I have just said it; simply, there was no alternative.
Sad though I may be, reading that development is about to cease, I can understand your case. Thank you really very much for investing time and sweat into such a magnificent program; we will not forget!

    How can I send the developer money to say thank you for letting me keep using my old machine and software.
    Thank you

    That's kind of you to offer, but we don't accept donations. Money makes things complicated.

    Thanks for keeping my Mac Mini 1.5GHz G4 useful.

    I use 10.4 to access system 9 Classic programs, some of which which have yet to be bettered. Our reference files go back to the late 80s (System 3, 68000).

    Onwards and Upwards

    Wanted to add thanks also. I have a G4 MDD which runs 2 apps that are too expensive to replace on a newer Mac. It works and so does TenFourFox. I appreciate your sacrifice of time and effort for the rest of us. Thank you, sir!

    Thank you so much to keep my powerbook G4 still alive and working. It would be obsoleted long time ago without wonderful Tenfourfox browser. Thanks for all the dedication from your amazing teams, I will be always in debt for your kind assistance.

    Thank you so, so much for all the blood sweat and tears you've poured into keeping this massive and extremely useful application running on old computers for many years longer than any of us had a right to expect! My 2005 Powerbook G4 remained somewhat useful for many years thanks largely to your work alone. Since you won't accept our money as gratitude, I hope to pay this generosity forward to others in the same way that you have. All the best to you Cameron.

    I echo those sentiments. I still use my Quicksilver for non-commercial design jobs to keep the creativity train rolling. I had long given up on being to surf for fonts or images to inspire me. Your labors have been a boon to me. Thank you for what you did. It is not a thankless job. And I so very much hope that you have been reunited with your family. The last I read, certain factors were interfering with your desires. Blessings to you and yours!
