I have an Indy running on IRIX 6.5. The main web browser cannot run very many websites. Are there any other more modern browsers that I can use to run websites such as wayback machine? When I try to run way back machine, I either get a HTML error message or the browser crashes. I have the internet working, and google works about 50%. Is there a better alternative for IRIX than this 1994 web browser?
Does IRIX 6.5 on an Indy support other web browsers other than Netscape? If so, where can I find them?
3There was a port of Firefox 3 for Irix 6.5. That puts you forward about 15 years. I don’t know where you’d find a copy, though,– rnxrxOct 7, 2018 at 19:41
3toastytech.com/guis/irix.html might just possibly be one viable starting point.– userOct 8, 2018 at 11:30
3Give github.com/tenox7/wrp (Web Rendering Proxy) a try as well.– sendmoreinfoOct 8, 2018 at 19:35
I'm pretty sure NCSA Mosaic will run on it, but that's a step back, not a step forward.– MarkMar 8, 2019 at 3:05
X11 allows you to run a browser across the network, like from a modern Linux box (running there, showing here). Will that work for you?– Thorbjørn Ravn AndersenMar 26, 2020 at 9:34
One step further would be to go to Firefox.
As one comment says there was an attempt to run Firefox 3 on Irix, but those pages are now offline without snapshots at archive.org.
But via IRIX Network! at least version 18.104.22.168 is on an FTP mirror and this is the latest I found: Firefox 3.0.19 (more) – That would bring you from 1994 to Firefox 3 Release Notes v3.0.19, released March 30th, 2010
Or compared to Netscape, maybe dillo 22.214.171.124? With all the awkwardness that comes with dillo as such, that would brig you to dillo-3.0.4 [April 09, 2014].
