I found FF slow even when i'd removed all addons. I found Epiphany fast but 
didn't cope with some webpages. I switched to Chrome about a year ago and like 
it. Those who don't like google tracking there is Chromium [but i had problems 
with that... can't remember now]. Chrome has so far coped with all and i'm 
pleased with it.
