 SMALL BROWSER THAT DOESN'T USE A LOT OF RAM?

Hello everyone,

  For a couple of months now I've been using Netscape (first v1.1 and now
v1.2). Unfortunetly my machine isn't exactly top of the line (486 dx/33, 4MB
of Ram) and Netscape runs terribly SSLLLOOOWWWW. The hard drive works like
crazy everytime I load a page (even if the graphics are turned off!). So all
in all, 80% of my WWW Surfing sesions are spent waiting for the thing to
load and the hard drive to stop working like crazy....

  Anyway, my question is, can someone recommend a browser for Windows that
uses the least amount of memory (RAM)? I don't need anything fancy, I just
want to see the text so that I can read it without having to wait 10 minutes
for it to load? If you know of a browser that fits the description, please
EMAIL me the name (and ftp/www site where I can get it [if you know it])...

 P.S. Please reply to my E-Mail address: he...@io.org

thanks,

Jake Klamka

getting access at 28.8k. If you're already hooked up at 28.8, disregard
all the above.
