Hi Dan, I tried it on pc, it was kind of heavy. When I had it  open task manager said over 1100 mb ram used with one page open.

Yikes!  :o

I have found a really good browser for my low spec phone. It has way less permissions than Brave browser. It's called Private Browser. After hearing Kim Komando say to check those permissions, there have been quite a few changes in my phone.

Thanks for the tip leenie, will check it out. Tryyng to get an outdated tablet to work for reading news and Linux forums. ;D Have tried some different browsers with very varying result. Opera mini works badly, so it is usable at some sites. The regular full featured browsers are not compatible with the tablet anymore, like Firefox  :( etc...

Still have to find out exactly how Text Browser works, it sems promising. Wish I have had more experience wtih different text browsers for Linux now.. Have seen this Private Browser in the Play download thingy so it is next on my list. :)

Thanks for input leenie. Will do some testing of Private Browser, Opera Mini, and Text browser. The main problem though is the tablet. It is old, low spec, and the web is constantly getting more and more high spec demanding. In the end one has to consider which fights it is worth spending time on. :)

Read about Private Browser, it is based on Lightning Browser and very light.
