ever since ff3 turned firefox into unusable, i'm on the quest to find a 
usable browser.
Chromium was quite decent for a while (after fixing the dbus dependency) 
despite it deadlocks when you mouse-move tabs (fortunately i dont do 
that anyway), but recently it started timing out on every second request.
The answer from google was: deactivate your windows firewall, so well.. 
back to searching a browser.
Basicly each and every firefox clone/fork/based browser has the same 
issues as firefox (100% disk i/o all the time even when idle), so those 
don't work.  webkit based browsers can't render half of the internet 
properly. i wonder if somone cloned chromiums webkit thing and made a 
brwoser of it?   uzbl is quite decent, i wish they'd use chromes rendering.
opera would be awesome if it didn't have billions of popups and their 
"Upgrade to opera10" popup really made me uninstall opera.

any options left?
