Mak, Flock isn't light at all - it's as heavy as Firefox 2 and then some thanks to all the extra features it adds.

But KMeleon is definitely light; and though I haven't checked out TheWorld another light broswer is Epiphany. (KMeleon is for KDE, Epiphany is for Gnome).

Last time i tried Flock it was a Beta and very light weight. :frowning:

http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/

I do know that KMeleon can be used with Windows. TheWorld was also a beta last time i used it.

Other than that there would be things like SeaMonkey but that would be heavy cause it uses a web based media player. There is also just the plain Mozilla Suite.

It's faster on my under-powered Eee than anything except Opera, which is just a tad quicker.

Yeah to bad they used Webkit for it. A older version at that and already have flaws found on it. :frowning:
