Hello. The best web browser in the delicate repository is called skipstone. Just become root, then enable the main repository in the delisetup, then sync the database with pacman -Sy and finally install the package with pacman -S skipstone

RE: latest web browser
I forgot to tell you, that you might encounter this problem. The repository is going to be split to devel and non-devel packages and this upgrade issue can be resolved by enabling the main-devel repository temporarily.

Sorry again ... I forgot to tell you that you need to update delitools in order to see the main-devel repository in the list of repositories ... it's just a temporary hack till I create a new installation image with the right version of delitools.

pacman -S delitools

once updated, you should see the main-devel repository in the list:

delitools updated but main-devel disabled by default. I enabled it by hand.

Yes. It needs to be enabled manually ...

I successfully installed the skipstone package but not before I updated all the packages with "pacman -Su".

Please, let me know if you're ok with this browser. I consider it to be well balanced for low performance and low RAM systems, but you still might be missing some features. The biggest dillema is whether we should introduce stuff like flash plugin, etc. Recent flash applications are sometimes unusably slow even on Pentium 3 CPUs.
