Cool, but I think that original cern web browser would not load modern https-encrypted pages. OTOH, I watched my wife's professional website (which I authored using HTML5 best practices) and it is surprisingly legible even in this very stripped down look :-)



 
This is pretty interesting. You can experience what the very first web browser was like as you'd run it on a NeXT computer (which it was written on). It's not really running NeXTSTEP it's a reproduction to make it feel like it a bit. Still pretty cool though. Plus it has a lot of history of the original browser and the very beginning of the web. #computer #history https://worldwideweb.cern.ch/



 
TFW you have to restore Mac to shipped MacOS Lion and you prefer that UI to what the most up to date one is going to impose on me... #computer #apple #uxdesign

Thanks. I'll look into that. I thought I'd read instructions how to roll back to any version, but they didn't work. I might just erase the disc and install 10.12.

Like you, I'd love to stick with an earlier version, reluctantly went to 10.7 when I bought this machine in 2011 and very reluctantly went to 10.12 a couple of years ago after quite a lot of software stopped working. Tsk tsk.

Enjoy your 10.5 while you can!

My MacPro is running with 10.11.6 El Capitan and it's ok....
