      The GNOME web browser in Debian at least:   sudo apt install epiphany-browser evince

      I second the recommendation for Midori. Another decent one is GNOME's "Web" browser. Another possibility is Netsurf   http://www.netsurf-browser.org/   Don't expect miracles though. These old netbooks are pretty ugly when it comes to performance.
