Specs: Vista Ultimate, SP2, 3.0Ghz/2Ghz
Does anyone know which versions of Opera work with Vista? Here is a link to a page which lists all the earlier versions:

Anyone familiar with Safari for Windows or Firefox? I think both of these support XP and Vista.
Thanks.

What you should be considering is replacing the OS.

Safari is a good browser, on the Mac. But the Windows version hasn't been updated for several years and it is doubtful it ever will be. It has security vulnerabilities which will never be fixed and for that reason it should be avoided.

I don't know what the latest version of Safari is but I seen links to download version 5.1.7 for Windows. Is that the latest version LMiller7 mentioned above?

You should work on your search skills. Safari for Windows version 5.1.7 is from 2012.

If I need to visit a website that is not supported by IE9 anymore on Vista (and also on XP which has IE8) I prefer to use the latest Firefox browser (the present successor of Mozilla's Netscape, which was a very good browser too at the time) which is at version 49.0.1 at the time of writing.
It works fine and if I need to visit a page that uses Flash I also install Adobe Flash (for Firefox only), without installing the additional crap.
The only thing that annoyes me is that it has to be updated so frequently, which is also the case for Adobe Flash.

Soedesh thanks for your input. Good to know that Firefox is a viable option and comes recommended by another forum user.
