    Lighweight web browser and email client


    I am currently running an IBM iseries at 800mhz with 192mbram my system is a little sluggish and I know it will be unless I run DSL or MepisLite but I dont like those distros and the system runs ok under debian I just need to run some light weight aps. Anyone got any suggestions on some light weight apps to replace Epiphany web browser and Evolution mail?

    Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

    I too recommend Claws-mail for email it's been part of my system for a while coupled with claws-mail-spamassassin. For a web browser try opera it seems to be faster than iceweasel for some reason.

    regards
