    Epiphany is the default browser for Gnome. Definitely worth a try.

    w3m (a text based Web browser) is installed by default.

    my vote on epiphany as a 2nd browser whenever FF hiccups.

    I've used Konquorer extensively, too. But if the question is 'what's lighter than firefox as a backup?' then konq is not the answer.
