Google Earth/Maps on TenFourFox?

Is TenFourFox usable for Google Earth? I often used Google Earth satellite photos, but today it said I need Mac OSX 10.5+. I realize TenFourFox will not support the Google Earth plugin but how about the .app?

    System requirements for Google Earth 5 are:
    - 10.4 and up, - 1 GHz processor (officially, it does run decently on my G3 800 MHz iBook) - 256 MB RAM - 16 MB video RAM (it will run on 8 MB VRAM machines, but with graphics glitches and slow).

    Later versions than 5.2 (I think) are Intel only or require 10.5/10.6, so make sure you disable Google Software Update. It may auto-update you to a version that doesn't run on your system (I've seen that happen).

    Whether or not you use TenFourFox doesn't matter because Google Earth is a standalone application.

    Many thanks for prompt reply. The current Google Earth is version 6.2. After I posted the question I noticed that what I was using previously was Google Maps not Google Earth. These include satellite image options, and continue to operate on TenFourFox version 10. I might post a clarification, unless you suggest that I drop the topic as not TenFour-related. (TenFourFox is doing a great job for my G4 Macs.)
    Thanks again - Stan

    Google Maps should be working just fine in TenFourFox. You might want to update to the current stable release TenFourFox 17, it's faster and more secure than 10. I'll close the thread for now – if you have any further questions regarding Google Maps just re-open.
