Ok google has a tool bar, woopy.. but of course they leave Mac hanging with their mice in the hands... And no one on a PC seems to be able to tell me how to find PR rankings without the toolbar. Does anyone know how to get PR rankings for sites on Macs?

I ask a friend with a PC to check it as a favor.

Then I buy them beers in London ;)

About the only thing I can figure out is go to the Google directory and eyeball it.

If anyone has a good suggestion I'm interested too.

Only other way is using Virtual PC.

Buy a cheapo used Windows box through the classified ads... you can also use it for previewing site designs in Windows & Linux browsers, if you reconfigure it as a dual boot machine.

I agree... I use Virtual PC for OS X! Smokin fast too.

I talked about this before:

On a side note:
There is a programmer on OSX Apps website macosxapps.com - The App is called "GoogleBar" You should contact them and let them know you are interested. It keeps them going! Also look up ShadowGoogle - they are working on a PR version also.

If Google won't do it - someone else will ha!

- Enjoy!

I just broke down and bought VPC with Windows XP last week. I am kind of curious about the "smokin fast" comment. I'm using a dual 1ghz with 512 megs of ram, and it bugs me on how slow XP is. Did you have to optimize anything to get it fast?

One thing that I didn't realize when I bought VPC is that XP is to Windows as OSX is to Mac. What I mean is that there are backward compatability issues involved. I wanted to be able to verify designs on a PC with several IE browsers, and I just found out that I can only use IE 6.x+ According to the Connectix moderator I have to buy a pre XP OS to be able to load any browser before 6.0

Hi KA_Curtis,

I am afraid the Connectix moderator is right. XP wont accept anything older than IE 6. I also use VPC on my Mac for quality control with older browser versions of windows. The best performance I got is with win 98. I suggest maxing out Ram if you want to run multiple versions of Windows at once. Otherwise you could be disapointed with the speed.

My G4 single 800 MHz (1,5 megs of ram) runs win 98 as fast a Pentium 3 600 Mhz would do. You wont get better performance from a twin chip with windows.

<edit>Sorry I wrote pentium 5 instead of pentium 3</edit>

thanks, now the problem is deciding whether I want to install another version of Windows. Took me 6 years to do one, maybe I can do a second in less time... :)

One good thing about it is when Windows crashes on you, you dont have to restart the computer. ;)
