A Universal Binary running on Leopard (Safari 5.0.6) would be great.

Yes, the plugin still don't work with Safari 5.0.6 (and I'm PowerPC)

If someone know how to add this with Xcode 4, tell me how and I'll add it.

I don't know exactly how it works, but this link should help: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5089491/creating-universal-binary-using-xcode-4-0

Or just use Xcode 3 ;-)

"Xcode4 does not support PPC any longer. Officially you have to use Xcode3 to create binaries that contain code for Intel and PPC architectures. Xcode4 only supports two Mac architectures: Intel 32 bit and Intel 64 bit"

It's time to buy a new one guys :)

Officially does not mean it's not possible ;-)
Why won't you just use Xcode 3 or apply this trick here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5333490/how-can-we-restore-ppc-ppc64-as-well-as-full-10-4-10-5-sdk-support-to-xcode-4?

"That's all folks. Considering how easy that was, you can imagine that Apple has certainly not dropped SDK 10.4/10.5 or ppc/ppc64 or GCC 4.0 support because this was a necessity, they dropped all that because they wanted to drop it."

Btw, I actually have a "newer one", but I never use it because it's slow and it just sucks.

Please think about it again ;-) Thank you.

Here is a quick port for PowerPCs running Safari 5.0.6 on Mac OS 10.5.8 (see the download section):


Feedback welcome!

Thank you sooo much for doing a port!

And the community showed that it's possible AGAIN!
You are the best!
