I believe Amaya was abandoned upstream years ago, don't really think it would be worth the trouble to keep unless you enjoy frustration.

FreeBSD ports dropped Amaya some years back because of security problems, as they did also with Xombrero.

Xombrero was an interesting browser, but was discontinued upstream because of security problems.

SeaMonkey is not at all lightweight (the Mozilla suite).

Netsurf is very limited in what it will browse.

Otter Browser looks promising.  You could also try a newer version of Midori.

Dillo is very limited in what it will browse, and very frustrating.
