Powerbook 1400cs, Mac OS9.1 and a good browser

In these days, which browser can be used smoothly on a Powerbook 1400CS with 64MB RAM and Mac OS 9.1?

I've tested: iCan, but sometimes it freeze the machine;
Internet Explorer 5: sometimes it stops download of a file unexpectedly;
Classilla: It is so slow!
Opera 5.06: It cannot work with SSL pages!

Someone have a good idea?

ISTR using iCab? But I've got CrescendoPB/466 G3 card in mine. Mine's awaiting a lid swap or I'd check. What processor card are you running? Got cache?

Well, Classilla is slow, but for Mac OS 9.x, it's the best, most capable browser there is for now, and the others are mostly useless because they don't support modern security protocols, and they don't support newer HTML/CSS standards.

Never thought of that, gotta fix the trusty WarDriver and give it a whirl!

Which CPU is that, the 117MHz? Nothing useful will run well on that. Even the 166MHz is going to be poky, but liveable.

My 1400 has a 466MHz G3.
