Re: light weight desktop for browsing


Good to know.

So the front runner combination at this point is xfce and Dillo.

Don't know about sarge's version of openbox, but sid's depends on
libxml2, which is pretty heavy, AFAICT and also libglib2.0-0.

So, since dillo requires libglib1.2 and libgtk1.2, you'd have
libglib1.2 & libglib2.0-0 loaded simultaneously.

I think I'd choose a minimal xfce, since it's Depends has substan-
tial overlap with dillo.
