What is the best lightweight browser?



  • I have been using K-Meleon, but it doesn't render most pages correctly (It can't even pass acid2).



  • Depends on whether you're okay with the browser being very limited in terms of customization (and features).

    It also depends on how you define "lightweight browser." To me, a lightweight browser is a browser with an exceptionally low memory usage and incredibly fast loading speeds. Assuming we agree here: the best lightweight browser, hands down, is Maxthon Nitro.

    Also, Dillo is worth mentioning.



  • Try Otter or Qupzilla.



  • Thanks for the help. I'm currently using Maxthon Nitro because when compared to Qupzilla (couldn't get Otter working because the QT installation didn't work) with 2 tabs, Nitro used only 22 mb instead of Qupzillas 320 mb.

    Yes nitro is lighter, but is practically featureless, Qupzilla and Otter, are way lighter than most of the mainstream browser while keeping a good amount of Opera like features.

    Anyway, about otter, be sure to install the right version.

    The ones with qtwebengine in the filename are more experimental/less stable, being based on blink instead of the stabler versions.

    Also is better to donwload the installer (.exe) rather than the .zip version
