I've been using the 4.5 US.SPARC LINUX 2.0 version for about 2 years

It can be found at

When looking at help->about it displays:
This version supports U.S. security with RSA Public Key
	Cryptography, MD2, MD5, RC2-CBC, RC4, DES-CBC,

It's quite stable on my Ultra 1 and 5, but you might want to use libc5
oldlibs next to glibc anyway.

I've looked at other browsers, but keep going back to this older thing,
because it's 'faster' IMHO.
