Looking for a recommendation for a fast, low-memory browser

Already tried the usual suspects; Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc. Looking for something with an incredibly low CPU footprint that'll run nicely. Used to use K-Ninja for these purposes, but apparently that's not around any more. Any suggestions?

It is not in your list so I wonder whether you have tried Opera or not. I found it to be low in memory usage and can be used on low end PC systems where may other browsers struggle to function properly. Usually I have more than 20 tabs running with no discernible loss of speed. Have you tried Avant, an IE based browser without the frills? all the best, rosdimy

With the power of the processors or the system as a whole nowadays, I don't think cpu usage is a big problem. Besides I can't seem to find a browser that has a really low cpu footprint. As the browsers increases in its features, I think the more that it uses the cpu. For me I stick to firefox.

It is in certain circumstances; Firefox for one is a terrible resources hog, and pretty all-elbows when you're running anything else. Don't get me wrong, it's what my wife and I use for 99% of the time, but certain websites will drag even with a high-end PC.
