    128 MB RAM - problem with the browser.

    Hello.

    I have a free VPS that have 128 MB RAM and 256 SWAMP. I want to run browser on it which refresh a page every 30 seconds. The problem is that the browser is closed, because of the lack of memory, I think.. I use Debian and Midori browser and LXDE. I can choose between CentOS, Debian & Ubuntu. All of them are 64 bit system. Do you have any idea how I can do to fix it?

    Thanks

    Try to run it on a 32 bit system as it would eat less memory.

    Unfortunately I can't do it. There's no option to install 32 bit system

    Contact your hosting provider & tell them that you want a 32 bit OS & I am sure they would help you.Otherwise upgrade to 256 Mb RAM.

    It's free VPS so I don't think they would do anything to help me. I changed deskopt to fluxbox and now it works fine. What's the lightest web browser that have javascript support?

    What's the real purpose of this? If you're aiming to achieve something at the server end, curl or wget would probably work just as well without needing a browser or desktop installed on your tiny VPS.

    Edit: Just saw you want javascript. Take a look at some of the suggestions here. As a general rule it's hard work to get complex things running in very limited memory - some look on this as a challenge to be overcome; others just pay a dollar or two more and get something more capable...

    PhantomJS may also be an option:
