> Have you tried konqueror from kde or firefox?


No, but I've tried python. It can't be the rendering. Running
"urllib.urlopen("http://en.wikipedia.org")" stalls like in the browser.
Adding a line to /etc/hosts with the wikipedia server's IP and the same
line runs instantaneously.
Running "dig @8.8.8.8 (my configured DNS) en.wikipedia.org" resolves the
name in under 30 ms! So something wierd is happening. I could try looking
into glibc but like you said why would it fail for only some websites?

I guess I could install Firefox anyway. What I really want is Google Chrome
but that's going to be a challenge.
