Best Web Browser For Older Macs?

Hey all, I have an old iMac that I am using while the macbook gets fixed. Its a 333mhz g3 with 280mb of ram, running Panther. It runs fine, but web browsing can stress it sometimes with multiple tabs open or what not. Right now I am using a mix of Safari, and Camino to see which is faster...(I can't decide)

What do you think would be the best browser for the machine? I don't care about features, as long as I can disable flash, there is a pop up blocker, and tabs.

Thanks

It comes down to personal preferences and what sites you visit, but I've always loved Safari.

You could try getting an old version of Firefox from oldapps.com.

Safari has served me well. I managed to install Safari 3 Beta onto an old iMac G3 in my basement. Works like a charm.

I found Firefox to be fastest on my slow computer.
