TinyCore will load to ram & uses busybox, so I still think it's worth checking out.

My netinst could be lightweight (it's not but could be (KDE handles things well in my book next I go Xfce or CLI and eg stretch\sid where more works because it's being worked on, )) I have Chrome and their development version as default, with FF and Nightly; between the 4 anyting the web can throw at me works. i7 here too plus script and ad blocking (as always ) is fast as it can be depending on the provider.
