    Light browser, good with rendering.

    When I mean light, I mean less than 10mb or ram usage. Dillo is VERY light, it uses less than 1mb of ram, however, it's rendering capabilities are very limited. Any suggestions?

    less then 10mb, there won't be nothing decent. i use chromium, on average at least 30+mb.

    Swiftfox is lighter than Firefox, if that helps. Tried Chrome, Dillo, and a few others but Fire/Swift-fox give me airmiles and I figure any sluggishness will be offset for that

    hm... in QT 4.7 beta tar.gz package (i don't know how about stable release) you have a small, quite nice 'example' of browser. it uses only few mb's (as far i remember) or ram. its simply called 'browser', its in /demos directory.

    You could try Midori for a browser.

    Before you go crazy with different environments and browsers, it might be a good idea to see if you can get Firefox running smoothly first.
