Dillo is a browser that is known for its super speed with a small memory footprint. It is written in C++ and is based on the Fast Light Toolkit which is beautifully integrated with C++. This makes a greater sense of speed because of native development. Dillo is free and open source for everybody on earth. The best feature in Dillo is its Bug Meter. It warns web developers of possible issues in their web pages. It makes use of the WDG validator instead of W3C. Dillo is highly efficient when it comes to software stability.
