    Pure speed? lynx (or links). Runs in the terminal. No graphics. No JavaScript. No nothing but the text bits of the page. But it renders in no time dead.

    Or try FireFox :D

    I use Firefox as well. It seems faster than Safari and is more compatible with the sites I visit.

    How do you run lynx? In terminal I type it and it just says command not found.
