Traditionally, I would have suggested Opera too, because it has
been my favourite browser for many years now. But with recent 
versions, I saw it getting... hmmm... how do I tell best? It's
getting more slower in overall handling, and it often stops
working completely (several seconds); printing isn't as good
as in Firefox, and it won't work on some sites that are no
problem with Firefox. Furthermore, there's lots of stuff now
bundled with the Opera web browser that I (personally) found
no use for, such as a mail client, IRC client, torrent client,
and some other stuff that could easily be called "bloatware".
(Don't get me wrong: The M2 mail client isn't that bad, but
far from lightweight, as the whole Opera is today.)

But maybe that's only "my problem" (due to my ancient computer
and OS). Try Opera. Maybe it works for you.

And: No, I'm no Firefox advocate. :-)
