I need suggestion for a lightweight browser for kiosk mode for raspberry pi zero. Chromium is running but it is a bit slow for my required application. My application is just displaying scrolling text data from server port.

  • try a text based web browser like Lynx

Kweb would be a pretty good option for a kiosk as it was made for that purpose. Midori also might work fine for you. You can look at this MagPi article about different browsers on the Pi. If you search you'll find websites with benchmarks of different browsers like this.
