iCab 5.0: Mountain Lion ready, runs on PPC
There aren’t a lot developers putting out new versions of their apps that will run on PowerPC Macs. In truth, iCab developer Alexander Clauss went out of his way to maintain compatibility by creating separate Universal Binary and Intel-only builds of this modern, feature-rich browser.
iCab 5.0 is now available and comes to market with some very nice and modern features, including:
• Adds a private mode
• Adds a reading list feature with Readability support.
• Adds a sidebar for Tabs
• Adds a Module Manager
• Supports the fullscreen mode of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
If you’re dissatisfied with how Safari, Firefox, Chrome, etc. handle tabs, iCab’s tab sidebar is worth a look and the Module Manager is a simple, all-in-one way to add functionality, like Facebook Likes and more.
For what’s it’s worth, iCab 5.0 scores a respectable 334 out of 500 points on the HTML5 Test, which compares well with Firefox 13 (345) and Chrome 19 (402).
