Can anyone recommend the best browser for the following type of build?
I have NetBSD 1.6.1 running on Sparc 5/170 and am using KDE 3.1.2.
Currently I have compiled and installed (from pkgsrc)Mozilla 1.4. Although I
like the product/features etc.., it is excruciatingly slow. The browser
itself takes about 30 to 40 seconds to load. Opening pages takes 15 to 20
seconds at a time. Also it is a hog on resources (i.e. memory,hard disk
space etc..and takes about a day and a half to compile and install.
So what I am looking for is advice on a stable browser that will work
faster, is more lightweight, and is able to compile/install in less time
with less headaches (make and make install processes work the first time)
and open pages much more quickly, and has many, if not more features,
I also have the standard Konqueror / KFM running (also installed from pkgsrc
as a part of KDE build). I like it but it does not open pages properly (i.e.
many icons not painted on screen, plug-ins hard to come by and not easily
Interestingly enough, the pkgsrc library for sparc build has Opera, Netscape
(and a few others I think). However, when I try to compile them , the make
process fails and reports that they are not available for NetBSD 1.6.1, even
though they are part of the pkgsrc for sparc. (hmmm)
So if anyone can recommend an app that works (on a NetBSD
1.6.1/Sparc/KDE3.1.2 build), has decent install documentation etc..
thanks in advance
