Default Best small browser for small comp?

In fixing small computers one thing that has bugged me the most has been to set them up with a browser that was light enough to be useful and not kill the machine' ressources, I have for exemple this 80486 with 16Mo Ram, Windows 95A on it, the comp runs just fine for small task for any low budjet user, I have tried a few different browsers but they are heavy and all uses too much ressources, I know this might seem paradoxal since the Web is filled with ressources hungry apps and gadgets, but I thought I check out this issue on this forum.

Any Linux OS that would be better even?

Thanks, I will try that, I would imagine I would need early versions of it too for a 486 comp. I tried Mosaic and for some reasons it would not run, game an error message in the install step.

cool, I'll try that, by the way, I got from an other forum a tip on using Off1 browser, it is a very tiny browser and works good on small comps.
