Small web browsers

Anybody know of a small web browser?
(small as in it's disk space requirements)
perferably open source and free.

Dillo's binary is about 350KB!
It is a bit limited in features, tho. If you don't need support for Javascript, or frames, it rocks!

elinks is great, but it's not a graphical browser. Works fine in the console or in an xterm though.

If you want it to be graphical, take dillo, firebird (or fox) ar to large.
