If you mean the Apple Safari Web Browser, get it here:

According to your specs, you are running PowerPC (PPC). So the current version of Safari available on the http://www.apple.com/safari page wont help you.

For Jaguar 10.2.x, download 1.0.
For Panther 10.3.x, download 1.3.2.

For Tiger or Leopard, they are still on Apple's website:

For Tiger 10.4.x, download 4.1.3.
For Leopard 10.5.x, download 5.0.6.

Firefox 3.6.25 is the most recent version, released on December 12, 2011.

You should also install Adobe Flash Player 10.1.102.64 so you'll be able to use YouTube, etc.

Some websites are starting to look for Adobe Flash Player 11, which won't run on PowerPC (PPC). However, someone this week in the Apple Support Communities discovered a hack to make Adobe Flash 10 report itself as Adobe Flash 11. Just goes to show the "11" requirement seems to be an artificial limitation: (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3599648?tstart=0)

If you download TenFourFox, plug-ins including Flash are disabled by default, which means you won't be able to watch YouTube or flash content. It's very easy to enable this by following this:

http://lowendmac.com/ed/royal/11sr/...

"In the address bar type 'about:config' and press enter. Look for 'tenfourfox.plugins.enabled' and set it to 'true' this will enable Flash. The developers advise against this as it may cause instability issue, but if you need Flash then you have no option. I haven't had any problems so far and Flash content like YouTube seems to run faster than it did in Safari 5."
