Internet & Networking A few days ago we read about the Deli Linux, which aims to fill-in the gap of Linux distros in the 486/586 machine range by running lightweight/older applications. The disto comes with Dillo and Links as its browsers, but I bet there aren't many people who know that there is yet another very lightweight browser for GTK+ 1.2.x and it is more powerful and more memory-optimized than Dillo: Access' NetFront. Check for info and screenshots inside.

Dillo has the nasty habit to completely go berzerk when tags are closing out of order (that's needed some times, in order to go around other browser bugs, including IE bugs).

I'm sorry, but that last thing is just bollocks.
Even if that is true (I do a fair bit of web development and I've never seen the need to put closing tags out of order) it would be so horridly broken that you'd be doing the other browser a *huge* disservice by providing a fix in the html.

To not be able to render properly nested html is... unthinkable by any browser (including lynx). Ok, rendering bugs do exist - but they should not be fixable by such atrocities.
