Dillo – a multi-platform, open source graphical web browser known for its speed and small footprint. It is written in C and C++ and based on FLTK, the Fast Light Toolkit. It supports only plain HTML/XHTML (with CSS rendering) and images over HTTP; scripting is ignored entirely.

Features: bookmarks, tabbed browsing, support for JPEG, PNG (including alpha transparency), GIF images, partial support for CSS. Settings such as the default fonts, background color, downloads folder, and home page are customizable through configuration files. Cookies are supported but disabled by default due to privacy concerns. Dillo automatically clears cache to improve both privacy and performance.

Dillo does not support JavaScript, Java, Flash, right-to-left text, or complex text layout.

The project founder is Jorge Arellano Cid.
