recommend me the best browser for P233


is there anyone running web browser on really old machine? i will be glad if someone can recommend me the best web browser for my machine (P233,96mb ram). now i am running mozilla firefox, but it is too slow. opera is faster but it us unusable due to the big banner in the toolbox (max. resolution of my lcd is 800x600). the speed cant be affected by connection speed, i am connected to 8Mbps (university optical fibre).
i dont want to use any built-in webbrowser in kde or gnome, because i am running fluxbox. i also dont want to use lynx or links.
hmm, is there any other web browser i`ve not mentioned?

thanks in advance

Else give a try to firefox

Either Dillo or Links-hacked. Maybe Amaya, but I haven't tried that one myself.
