[arch-general] usable browser?

I don't understand why people want to use software that has no features. If
something has more than one feature, people bitch about bloat. FF is not
that bad nor is Seamonkey or any of the webkit stuff.

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.
