Might try looking at gzilla (GTK browser not based on Mozilla), or seeing
how well KDE's file manager browses web pages. If KDE's file manager works
OK perhaps one of the developers would be willing to repackage kfm as just
a web browser w/o the object handling backend. 8Mb though is barly enough
for X, if it isn't swapping constantly... 

I'm curious to see what you will come up with though :)
