Good browser for XP SP3 w/ K6

Postby CkRtech » 2018-5-17 @ 00:55

Hey guys -

Most of the non-modern stuff I do is Win 98 or earlier.

I acquired an old laptop with an AMD-K6-something @ 366 with 160 MB of RAM. It is dual-booting fresh installs of Windows 98 SE and Windows XP SP3.

Can you guys recommend a browser that can take advantage of the XP environment (vs 98SE) and work with the limited instruction sets of this processor?

I am trying to find that sweet spot of performance/CPU instructions/OS/security for this guy. And of course, this is a tug in 4 different directions.

I would give QTWeb a try. Dillo is even more lightweight, but it's rendering is pretty poor.
Check out DOSBox Distro:

a lightweight Linux distro (tinycore) which boots off a usb flash drive and goes straight to DOSBox.

Make your dos retrogaming experience portable!

I'm amazed you put Windows XP on a machine of that age, I would hesitate to put even Windows 2000 on something like that.
