NCSA Mosaic on the Mac

A nostalgia article on PC World, Finding Stuff Online: 20 Years of Innovative Search Engines, reminded me that I should share my running version of NCSA Mosaic v2.7 with others. I don’t know where I got it, but it might have been from the Floodgap guys.

To that end, here is my compiled version of NCSA Mosaic, running on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. You’ll need to download OpenMotif. The 10.5 version worked for me (backup hosted here).

When you run it, and you have OpenMotif installed, X11.app should start up, and you should see good ol’ NCSA Mosaic v2.7. Since it runs in XWindows, you can run it remotely over an SSH tunnel too. Enjoy!
