6. Kylie
Kylie is a web browser supporting text, images, tables and (soon) forms. It doesn’t do css, frames or scripting. And it’s neither fast nor cute. That’s why it is version 0.0.x.
7. Hv3.
Html Viewer 3 (hv3) is a powerful yet minimalist web browser that uses Tkhtml3 as a rendering engine andร‚ย  SEE (Simple ECMAScript Engine) to interpret scripts. The application itself is written in Tcl. Currently it is at alpha stage.
Beside the above GUI browser, an alternative are text browser that running within text mode environment, such as W3m & w3m-img, Lynx, Elinks and much more.
Anyway, choosing best lightweight browser is not a general answer. It depends on user requirement, preferences andร‚ย  web page to be display.

  1. The Konqueror browser is included by default in any KDE installation.
    One thing that’s critically important is CSS2 and W3C standards support as of, say, 2005. Proprietorial ‘standards’ are too complicated and difficult to implement unless implemented via an tag.
    A full-bore emacs installation may include a text-only browser very like lynx.
