    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

    Check Source Forge , I got 202 results for web browsers.

    Or just stop obsessing over RAM usage? Unless it significantly slows down your computer, you're being a tad perfectionist and unrealistic tbh.

    I have 1gb of ram on my netbook. I run gnome. And with firefox, browsing is very laggy. It does affect my browsing significantly.

    there you go, your using gnome & firefox. try a lighter desktop/window manager on the back end & chromium-browser(it's in the repo)

    i'm using an atom 230 1.6ghz 1gb ram nettop.
    running openbox + xfce4-panel + xfdesktop

    i've never ever used more the 400mb yet.

    Smile Re: Light browser, good with rendering.

    Here:

    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env python
    import sys
    import gtk
    import webkit
    DEFAULT_URL = 'http://www.google.com' # Change this as you Wish
    class SimpleBrowser: # needs GTK, Python, Webkit-GTK
        def __init__(self):
            self.window = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
            self.window.set_position(gtk.WIN_POS_CENTER_ALWAYS)
            self.window.connect('delete_event', self.close_application)
            self.window.set_default_size(350, 20)
            vbox = gtk.VBox(spacing=5)
            vbox.set_border_width(5)
            self.txt_url = gtk.Entry()
            self.txt_url.connect('activate', self._txt_url_activate)
            self.scrolled_window = gtk.ScrolledWindow()
            self.webview = webkit.WebView()
            self.scrolled_window.add(self.webview)
            vbox.pack_start(self.scrolled_window, fill=True, expand=True)
            self.window.add(vbox)
        def _txt_url_activate(self, entry):
            self._load(entry.get_text())
        def _load(self, url):
            self.webview.open(url)
        def open(self, url):
            self.txt_url.set_text(url)
            self.window.set_title('%s' % url)
            self._load(url)
        def show(self):
            self.window.show_all()
        def close_application(self, widget, event, data=None):
            gtk.main_quit()
    if __name__ == '__main__':
        if len(sys.argv) > 1:
            url = sys.argv[1]
        else:
            url = DEFAULT_URL
        gtk.gdk.threads_init()
        browser = SimpleBrowser()
        browser.open(url)
        browser.show()
        gtk.main()
    This browser qualify 100/100 on Acid3 Test,
    it uses less than 10Mb, Use URL as PARAMETER.
