Looking for a Low Resource Web Browser

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Sorry if I posted in the wrong section.
I want to know what browser to use on my laptop which only has 186 mb's of ram (I know pretty terrible).Firefox is using too much and it slows it down.
Any ideas on what I could use?

I say load up DSL (damn small linux) and use the included web browser. Should be light enough for your laptop. You could also get more ram on ebay for cheap. It will probably max out at 512mb or 1gb so research and then buy.

Oh wow, thats not that bad of a cpu at all. All that and only a 256mb of ram total. If you can go into your bios and turn down some of the shared memory settings. Its sharing some of that ram with the intergrated video. Ussally there is a option somewhere in there that will let you chose between, 16, 32, 64, 128 or something like that. Also Your system should be using standard DDR SODIMM, just pick up 2x 512mb sticks for a total of 1gb and it will work pretty good. My dads HP dv1000 runs a 1.6ghz version of that and still works great by todays standards.

I would also just stick to XP. XP is still one of the most light OS's you can find.
