Default Lightweight browsers

I tested all of these and a few others to boot, and the ones I liked the most were Midori, Qupzilla and Slimboat. I dont care about flash since I loathe adobe in every way, so that was of no concern to me. I liked how Midori handled Java much better than Slimboat, Slimboat crashes java applets like yahoo pool. Plus Slimboat tends to crash after a few hours of usage and also has some lag. Better than the usual browsers though. Qupzilla might be the best of all worlds though, it's very lightweight, has a fast turnaround rate (new versions every couple weeks), has a fast and responsive bug reporting system, supports Flash and Java well (though cpu usage is around 20 percent in yahoo pool vs 7 percent with Midori, both are way better than Slimboat which crashes on it.) All three are now compatible with yahoo and gmail and twitter and facebook. Any browsers lighter than these do not work well- qtwebbrowser does not support java at all and konqueror does not support direct messaging in twitter.
