I'm not sure why Firefox is still necessary -- it's now so bloated and
slow. For a recent lightweight build I built and installed the
popular awesome window manager (not in the book
http://awesome.naquadah.org/) and the xombrero browser (not in the
book but previously mentioned by me http://is.gd/COxf3u).
They are both working really well together and are lightning fast.
