Cluttermagnet Posted December 1, 2012 Share Posted December 1, 2012 (edited) Just wondering, since I'm temporarily back on dialup- how about some lighter weight browsers that play on Linux OS's? I remember toying with really lightweight ones in Windows back prior to 2007. Used tiny stuff like 'Off by one" and several others. I'd be very interested in hearing what sort of stuff like this you guys have played with- and felt was a 'keeper'. I guess I'm looking for utilities that do handle graphics, but perhaps selectively, say by turning them off by default and then allowing download of single graphic instances off of a given web page, one at a time. I suppose this also fits under the category 'Lightweight Distros', but I'm just trying to see if there are any lightweight browsers I can download into an obsolete, non- supported distro that I already have running (Ubuntu Dapper 6.06). I suppose I could also inhibit downloading of graphics in the installed copy of very old FF v.1.5- if I knew how. I'm going to gradually start trying some of my other boxes with Linux installed, to see if I can have any other successful dialup activations. As I remember, my batting average was abysmally low in that regard. Edited December 1, 2012 by Cluttermagnet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
