It is capable of using either Webkit or Gecko as the rendering engine, but
only the Gecko version has been built for Lenny.
Obviously, it's heavier (and far more functional) than Dillo. For the tasks
you mention, it might be better to use something like links2. Or build Dillo.
I'll give it a try. It is certainly heavier than dillo -- 20 new
packages and about 10MB to download. It loads pages quickly off the
web, though, so it ought to be good and fast for local html documentation.
