Question LightWeight Browsers


hi,

does anyone knows about a good, small and fast web browser that supports frames, java, css (flash optional)

it should work pretty fast (or normal at least) on a slakware 9.0 system on a p1 at 166 mhz with 56 mega ram.

thanks!

Try Links, a text based browser. You may never go back. Thats on the CD.


I like Firebird .6 as well, but it may still be too heavy for his system.


Also, Galeon isnt on the Slackware CD. It annoys me, because I havent gotten one version to build right on Slack 9.

Freshmeat.net has an article that reviews a bunch of light weight browsers, check it out. It should be on the side of the front page.

Nope. I still get the same error. A bunch of glibc errors and then it crashes. Both Epiphany and Galeon. Oh well, thanks anyway.

If your using the mozilla that came w/ Slackware, do:

export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/mozilla-1.3


but when I do that, I get seg faults, which the Galeon faq said was because I had it pointed to the wrong directory, but thats the right directory (its has to be the directory with the mozilla-bin binary.)

So maybe you will have better luck.

hello again

I use the mozzila that came with slackware

after writing

# export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/mozilla-1.3
# galeon

I get this error.

/usr/bin/galeon-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libiconv.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

in epiphany case.. the same error

a library is missing.

what's the next step?

the package neenee recomanded can be the solution?

its the "libiconv" library. Search freshmeat or google-linux whenever you need a libraryl.

PS. I solved my problem. The libbonobo libraries (about 4 of them) that come with Slackware are too out of date, I had to update them, and it works fine. You may have to upgrade as well. Check out:

http://www3.linuxpackages.net/packag.../robert/gnome/

He keeps up-to-date gnome packages for slackware.
