I just was trying Ubuntu server ppc for an old g3 -- the Gnome
Desktop default was way too slow, but I found these LXDE packages and
they worked good so I put them on my g4 powerbook too. Wow, great !
Gnome is so slow !
Debian has them too (that's what the g4 is running, the only reason I
used ubuntu for the g3 powerbook was that the pc-card wifi was broken
on debian) -- my g4 is running squeeze. Its really nice there.
Another good newish lightweight tool I just found is links2. Unlike
the other members of the lynx family this one runs in graphical or
working too well for me anyway). bbc.co.uk takes you to a simplified
version of their site with text and pictures only (no "flashy" stuff).
Links2 can also do gmail pretty well.
Graphical mode also includes buttons and a pull down menu.
