Hi all,
i want to find a daily lightweight browser for use normally, i think firefox is to heavy, so i would like to know which ones are you using.

i have try these ones:
dillo: there are some pages that i cannot see, so i quit using it
midori: very unstable, so i quit
conqueror: i didnt get use to it, to complicated to a normal casual use
galeon: it look good and at the moment is the one that had give me less problems (i dont know how to add certificates, but for the other pages work great)

any other recomendation?
thanks

I guess the best way is to use firefox. It is heavy byt very usable.

I use dillo and midori as well for some sites. But I do not use web too much on netwalker.

I used Midori. Was stable enough here. Some crashes occasionally but I seem to get that with any Midori version. I remember it being faster than Firefox and not as heavy on resources.

Have you tried e.g. epiphany-webkit? For some sites a text-based browser might be enough. It doesn't get any more lightweight than that smile.gif

It works well! It seems that chromium is a little more reactive than firefox and the startup is better compared to the one of firefox as well.

That repository is down, but I found this mirror:
http://nnc.dyndns.biz/netwalker_rep/

I installed chromium and it's much more stable and faster than firefox. No flash though.

If anyone has ported lynx or elinks for NetWalker, that would be the lightest you can go, as someone else mentioned.

On my Collie and Tosa, lynx is a browser that makes browsing quick and pleasant for me, I do not like links and elinks and only use them when needed for ssl or lightweight javascript, with the heaver browsers I only use when absolutely necessary.
