I've got my 9600 set up right now. It has a 250 MHz G3 upgrade, 240 MB RAM running 9.2.2. I'm posting from it via Classilla right now, and I've also put on iCab. (I already had the latest IE and Netscape versions, but they're pretty old. Classilla and iCab seem pretty nice for this so far, but have I overlooked anything else worth installing?

With a G3 and that amount of RAM, Classilla's really your best bet, as its the most up to date, and should run pretty well on that machine.

Classilla - Best All Around, especially for Javascript
iCab - Sometimes beats Classilla on Layout, I use it as my JS off, CSS on browser.

Opera 5 isn't bad either.

I'll give Opera 5 a shot on it. I'm happy with the Classilla/iCab combo for the novelty browsing it does...but since I'm just playing around it's always good to see what else I can play with!

In fact Opera 6.03 is tha latest one for Mac OS 9. It´s damn fast. If a website is rendered correctly I preferre to use Opera for it. Nevertheless Classilla and iCab are mandatory. I got all 3 at my HDs for different tasks. ;)

Yah, I really like Opera too. So far, v9 seems very fast (even on my G3 300) and even runs on 10.2/10.3 . I haven't tried 10 on any PPC systems yet.
