In my experience FF on the Iyonix compensates for its apparent lack of responsiveness by efficiency in other areas - cached pages are retrieved very quickly, for example, and the comprehensive history enables previously accessed pages to be easily retrieved. In these respects FF is much /more/ responsive than nominally faster browser like the Oreganos. Besides, the latest RO version is significantly more responsive than the earlier ones. Finally, knowing that your browser isn't going to throw a terminal wobbly after minutes of painstaking data entry into successive https screens is a comfort!
