For a browser, try: (14:17:45 <~>) $ cat /usr/ports/www/dillo/pkg-descr Dillo is a web browser project completely written in C (currently the code is based on gzilla-0.2.2's widget, and a new improved network engine written from scratch). Dillo is small; source is less than 360 kB and binary is less than 270 Kb. Dillo aims to be a multiplatform browser alternative that's small, stable, developer-friendly, usable, fast, and extensible. Dillo is mainly based on GTK+ (GNOME is NOT required!) Dillo is very fast!
