I know it requires bunch kde stuff, but I have run Konqueror  on my older computer (75mhz pentium running Knoppix cd with fluxbox desktop).  Takes forever to load Konqueror, but it surfs much faster than Firebird on DSL.  By way Mozilla was unusable on same setup. Konqueror has come long way.  

I dual boot win95 with DSL on this same 75mhz computer on 300mb partition.  I dont have much room so installed IE5.5 (really slow on old computer) then CrazyBrowser, then ieradicated IE5.5 to save space.  Enough IE files left for CrazyBrowser to run.  Smaller total install than Kmeleon. Ok and about as fast as Kmeleon, but I like Kmeleon better. (In winXP on fast computer, I like CrazyBrowser better.) Oddly in windows on old machine, full blown Mozilla acts like Konqueror on linux on old machine.  Takes forever to load, but surfs fairly well thereafter.

Now recently I have been experimenting with BeOS5 (download about size of DSL).  Comes with Netpositive browser which is about like links-hacked on DSL, even a little less advanced however it is smoother when scrolling.  There are very few browser options for beos.  Pretty much just an old beta of Opera3.62 and a very slow port of an old version of Mozilla. Recently ran across an unofficial port of Firebird 0.7 for it, said to run reasonably fast, but so far I cant get it installed and no documentation and no answers on beos boards.  Hoping it would be faster than Firebird on DSL.
