I'm switching to either WindowMaker or Fluxbox. What is the best web browser, given that I don't already have a reason to have Qt or GTK+ installed? I'd hate to have to install Qt just to run Opera, for example.

Any ideas?

If you don't mind installing GTK try Dillo - it's very small, very quick and very smart.

If you're really dead-set against installing a gtk or qt (why??!!) I would suggest links.

actually, you can install opera w/o QT. It actually comes w/ a statically compiled qt library. That mean ofcourse that you have to use the binary that they provide as opposed to emerging it. It's actually very very fast. I was impressed w/ it.
oh, don't forget that it needs libpng. I tried installing the binary (untar and type ./configure) and it exited on that error. I was too lazy to install libpng.
FYI- I use mozilla-rc1 and that is actually quite impressive. might need gtk though.
