nils, no problem, because of your posting,i came to know about so many other browsers. i have used midori earlier; but never heard about netsurf, w3m, dillo. so trying them is a new experience for me! 

i was actually thinking about monopoly of one product/rendering engine- "is it healthy for the eco-system?" that leads to the question. thanks for providing the names.
