I know, but after all, it comes down to preference. Xubuntu will ship
because it can be supported, and it's Open Source, and someone with older
machines can install Opera because it's faster.
Basically, this problem can't be solved:
- all Gecko based browser are slow (seems it's going to be solved);
slow, but huge memory munchers
- Konqueror is KDE based
- all other lightweight browsers are unsuitable for general use
- Opera is closed source
So Firefox it shall be :)
