I'll stick with mozilla. It is a miracle you're capable of running any program with 64 MB

Fastest browser and smallest footprint for memory: Lynx. Hands down.

galeon or firebird, either one does the job, I use galeon at home, but use firebird at work, i think firebird is definitely fit your description.

Even cheaper than Lynx is wget. Simply grab the pages you want and read the text of each component. Save a lot of CPU time if you just eyeball the HTML and other source formats.

Another vote for Firebird. It's still in beta, but I use it exculsively and never have any problems.

I use Galeon. I like it better than Firebird because it's easier to close each browser tab.

galeon or epiphany would be appropriate for this setup
