10 Discontinued Apple Products We Miss

5: The "Clamshell" iBook

(Debuted: 1999; Discontinued: 2001)
It isn't hyperbole to say that the iBook (and that same year's iMac) line shocked the world by introducing colors to computers, shattering the dominant beige paradigm present at that time. Unfortunately, only five colors were made available (and some crazy designs later), and Apple has yet to repeat the experiment, but we live in hope.

Internet Browser for the Clamshell iBook

There are only a few Internet Browsers for outdated MacOS, which are subject to continuous develepment - such as Classilla and iCab for OS 9, iCab for OSX 10.3 and 10.4 plus TenFourFox for 10.4.
Camino and Opera are still useful with reservations.
iCab Browser is Shareware, but there are only reminders which pop up from time to time.
