Vintage Opera

Firefox vs Opera on 98SE / Pentium MMX 233 / 64Mb ?

Need to install a browser on a "vintage" laptop. Which would perform best given the limitations above?
Answers like "I like Firefox" don't help. Unless you're also using a starved machine like the one I've mentioned.

I like, and use, both browsers. For the resource-limited scenario you have given, however, I will have to buck the trend on this thread and recommend Opera. In my experience, it seems a little faster in a low-RAM situation. The down side is that it seems to have a few more problems rendering some pages than Firefox, but then again there are just going to be some pages that have been coded exclusively for the idiosyncracies of IE and neither Opera nor Firefox will work.

But why choose? Why not install both? You can try them out on your actual hardware and see for yourself how they do. That is the proof in the proverbial pudding.

On a side note, I wouldn't try Linux on this machine without a serious RAM upgrade. The processor is fine, but modern desktop distros really like a little more room than a skimpy 64MB. You could go for a console-only installation, but that pretty much cuts out any serious web browsing (Lynx can go only so far on the modern web) and it makes your decision between Opera and Firefox pretty moot.
