Seamonkey is quite fast. Although I am not using it now I have in the
past and I know it is used extensively in Puppylinux because it is full
featured and light weight, even including a mail client.
Since it is developed by Mozilla it is very similar to FF in
functionality but does not have all the extras that slow FF down.
I agree that FF has gotten very bloated in the last few years, I think
to compete with and explorer and make windows users happy. But as a
result the browser is not what it used to be.
I currently use chrome both on windows and in Arch and it runs the
fastest of any others for me.
