BrowserLinux + Chromium
has no mention of Iron browser that I can find. Nor does the Youtube video:
help any (outdated?). Can Iron browser still be added to BrowserLinux 501, or do I need to aim for BrowserLinux Chrome: (https://www.browserlinux.com/older-smaller-versions

It's time to consider updating to a newer Puppy if you actually want to access any website which is not primarily text. As far as I can tell, Browserlinux 501, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=443701#443701 was based on Puppy 4.31 followed by another version of based on Lucid/Lupu. See, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=444589#444589. No version of Lupu can run modern Google-Chrome (or its clones). Perhaps it can run a version of Google-Chrome 48 which Mike Walsh published 4? years ago. The Chromes are now at version 74. Websites which provide rich graphics and any video won't even allow access to those using other than very recent Google-Chrome or firefox. As far as I recall, only Watchdog's special builds of Palemoon --which can masquerade as firefox-- and now a year old could be run under a Puppy as old as Browserlinux. You'll find them here, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=973676#973676. Note the designation "glibc219tweak" they all have. Modern browsers, among other things, require graphic libraries no older than 219. Updating those libraries within an old Puppy, itself, will break applications requiring pre-219 libraries.
