With a nod to the OP's comment about the huge footprint of modern browsers, does anyone remember this little gem, the Off By One Browser?...1.2 MB..Yep, you read that correctly..This thing flew compared to anything else on the market at the time!..I did a search for it and was surprised to see it was still up even though it died in 2006...http://offbyone.com/offbyone/index.htm..It seemed to be a time where everyone was striving to make things smaller. I remember having a file written in Assembly language. I think it was around 15kb size and it played music for 3 or four minutes along with some kinda basic graphics if memory serves correctly..

If you want alternatives for music players I found this
You can find decent music players, weighing less than 1Mo and using 5 Mo of ram.

I was just reminiscing. I use Clementine now, but I'm not entirely happy with it. That was a great link you posted though. Very comprehensive and some players I've not heard of before. Merci :happy:

De rien ;)
This kind of list should be updated, shared, and even extended to video player and so on.
I generally use Clementine but I'm testing alternatives to minimize ram and cpu footprint.

I have installed Falkon and it is a very good replacement for Qupzilla, it would be good to have it as an alternative to the package installer. This is your page:

How? As appimage or flatpak? and what is the size of that package?
I still use qupzilla for some quick lookup stuff with disabled jscript and only a fixed number of bookmarked sites.
But would not use it without some kind of ublock/umatrix pretection as a normal inet-browser.
Internal ablocker is too limeted in qupzilla too.
