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.

RE: Links - links-hacked

The graphics mode of Links-hacked is nice but there is no way to select code page. And rendering of ISO8859-2 text is ugly (ISO8859-1 characters are OK but other are not). Original Links2 has no problems with it...

And both NetFront and Dillo are useless for browsing of non-English (Czech, Polish, Russian etc.) sites because they don't have any possibility to switch codepage. And it is imposible to use non ISO8859-1 font in Dillo. So Links2 is still the only choice for many people :-(
