according to Opera's documentation as 386SX with 6MB RAM should do.  I'd try it out and see what happens. :)

how 'bout Lynx for DOS?  it says it'll need a 386, but I'm not sure (haven't tried it). http://www.fdisk.com/doslynx/lynxport.htm

I thought DosLynx would be able to run on a 286...

Google to the rescue!

seems you can try either Arachne or NetTamer:

Go to http://www.oldskool.org/~tvdog/internet.html to find DOS Internet software that can run on a 286 with limited memory.  There are two interesting HTML readers (web browsers) that can run in your system.  Both ftp://ftp.oldskool.org/pub/tvdog/internet/exe_16a.zip (a text based browser similar to lynx in UNIX) and ftp://ftp.oldskool.org/pub/tvdog/internet/arcn14b2.exe (a graphical browser) will run in your system.  However, in order to use the graphical web browser, you must have at least EGA graphics.
