The Lightweight Browser Rundown

The Terminally Incoherent blog has posted a rundown of lightweight web browsers.

Most of modern browsers tend to eating up to tons of your memory, and think nothing of it. So here are some browsers designed for fast action, and minimal operating footprint. These are perfect for your old decrepit little computer that you have raised from the dead using some lightweight linux distro.

The post covers all of the major text and graphical browsers, plus a few graphical browsers that you probably don’t know about. My favorite text web browser is w3m, but mostly just because it comes installed by default on most Linux systems.
