I am looking for a browser that will work with Mac 0S X Version 10.4.11
I have an old Imac computer I am trying to use to surf the web but most websites are not displaying images or even opening. It is currently running Mac 0S X Version 10.4.11.
Will your browser work on my computer? And what version should I download?

James, what kind of iMac is it? G3, G4 or G5? What's the processor speed? If in doubt, click About this Mac… in the Apple Menu.

Its an Imac5, 1
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
Looking online I think its a 2006/2007 model.

So you have an Intel iMac, which means the 'official' TenFourFox won't work on your computer.
If your iMac can update to Max OS X 10.11 El Capitan, you could just run the latest version of Firefox. But I only recommend doing this if the Mac has an SSD and at least 4 GB of RAM:
If you want to keep Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger you have two options:
These unofficial builds are not supported here. I cannot recommend which one is better, you'll have to try for yourself. (I'd probable try the more recent TenFourFox-FPR24-i386 first).

Thanks for your reply.
I checked and Apple says my computer cannot be upgraded to another operating system unfortunately.
I just thought of one problem when downloading the TenFourFox-FPR24-i386 browser. If I try to access this page on the Imac computer it will be unable to open the website. I have another computer the one which I am messaging you from but thats a windows 10 computer. I am assuming that if I download the TenFourFox-FPR24-i386 it will be the Windows version of this browser? Is there anyway I can download the Mac version of TenFourFox-FPR24-i386 from a windows computer?
I could then save it to a USB drive and transfer it to my Imac computer and then install it there.

There is no Windows version of this browser :-) Just download TenFourFox-FPR24-i386 on Windows 10 and transfer the installer to your iMac using the USB drive as you planned.

I'm sorry, I don't have any suggestions except: If you want to enjoy Youtube, you'll need a newer Mac (minimum Core 2 Duo, built ca. 2009 or later) that supports at least OS X 10.11 and runs at least Firefox ESR 78 or the latest Waterfox Classic. Or a very fast PowerMac running the latest TenFourFox.
