For really truly old machines, I recently added a 32-bit palemoon-nonsse2 package to my repo that does not require SSE2--examples are some old AMD Athlon or Via processors.

I don't know why there are some people in this thread being dicks instead of suggesting lightweight browsers. Qupzilla is considerably faster than Firefox. Additionally, I've disabled Netscape plugins, Javascript and Java but I have very simple requirements.

Dillo is the fastest browser I've used but it's virtually useless because it doesn't format pages properly.

They aren't being "dicks", they're having a bit of fun. If you take the time to read more of bester69's threads, you'd find that the OP doesn't mind a bit of criticism and comes here to have fun too. I wouldn't be at all surprised if bester69 is chuckling too. After all, this is the Offtopic Forum.

One should certainly hope so.
I've seen quite a lot of his posts, and if they are indeed all serious .....

I guess somebody must be responsible for the entertainment part, and bester69 has heroically volunteered, it seems.

Many are disappointed with the choice of Falkon as Qupzilla's new name instead of "Browsey McBrowserface" or "Falkon Puuunnch!", but that's the Internet for you. :)

Yes but when more people mention the same solution it lends more credence to that solution.

Something like a LTS older version of firefox/chromium with just security updates. I meant with each new update, internet browsers need more CPU and RAM, and in older computer they are not workable anymore.

Try SeaMonkey (currently based on Firefox 51.0) and Slimjet (based on Chromium).
