What are you running with XFCE? (I assume it's XFCE4?) If you run 
everything it offers you end up with a desktop environment, but you can 
run just the window manager if you want (xfwm4).

Yea good point, But why not just run ICEWM then (ok I guess you get a little more interactive menu)!

How about links2 in graphical mode (links2 -g)?

Interesting, looking better then dillo so far. Ill give it a road test. 
I guess my test for a browser is would you use it yourself and would you recommend a linux newbie to use it? Remember Links2 dosen't have CSS support and only looks after html 4.0. 

But thanks for pointing it out Todd.
