Sometimes you find good things in small packages. At least that has been my experience with picking through the wares often buried in directories of open source software that feeds my Linux OS passion. Dillo, a little-known tiny Web browser, was an unexpected find. This baby browser has a very small footprint and is lightning fast. How fast, you say? It loads in under a second and renders just as quickly. In fact, I tend to be brutal with Web browsers as I constantly open and close URLs and often use them to quick-start opening files to peek inside their content.

After development on dwb ended, I did spend some time with dillo. Amazing software, but not what I was looking for.

I found Dillo as I was seeking to use a lightweight and fast browser for offline navigation in html documentation under Linux. Firefox is taking time to load itself, this problem is gone in using Dillo.
I anyway found a drawback: Yo cannot select copy and paste in a text editor for some portions of text,which is useful to take code snippets from a documentation. This would certainly be a feature to add to this nice piece of software. I do not use Dillo for external navigation, for some security reasons, (maybe unjustified).
Best regards
