I have a Mac PPC G5 running OS 10.5.8 and was disappointed when NetSurf 2.7 wouldn't run on it. Since receiving your post below I have downloaded and installed Xcode 3.1.3 (there's supposed to be a 3.1.4 but I can't find it) and now Netsurf runs a treat on my Mac.

Many thanks for that information.
