Replacements for ThunderBird and FireFox

While I will agree that firefox2 has become far more costly on resources
than its predecessor, I'm not entirely sure a move to kazehakase is what we
need. Anyone who would like to should install it and see what they think but
I'm just a big fan of the user interface. Any other suggestions? ... perhaps
a gnome based browser that might be easily ported to be gtk-only dependent?

On the other hand .... sylpheed-claws has my vote to replace thunderbird,
t-bird is just too fat for its own good these days.
