Hi Lars,

whilst this is a slightly OT regarding Chromium issues, there is still some
chatter on using what was xxxterm (now xombrero)[1] As a really low
resource browser. Whilst the general consensus seems to be that it is not
yet mature enough / has enough features to be considered as a replacement
for Chromium I do know of a couple lubuntueers who are very happy with it.
If you are finding Chromium to be simply too much of a resource hog for
your system, it may just help you.
