iMac PowerPC G5 update help

in Genius Bar edited January 2014

I just picked up an iMac G5, and never having owned one before, I did not know what I was getting.  That being said, I now need to figure out what my options are for updating a few programs.  I will mainly be using this to surf the web, but would like to be able to share itunes and put movies on it. It currently has itunes 4 on it, and I am not sure what version I can upgrade to. It is running Safari 3.0.4 and would like to update that as well.  I tried to put firefox on, but the new version was not allowed.  Also, the operating system is 10.4.11, and I would like to update that as well.  Any info or help with this is much appreciated.   Here are the machine specs...
