The only browser i've ever used that renders pages quickly is opera. plus is caches your history so you can instantaneously go back to previos pages you visited. Tab switching is also instant. Firefox doesn't cache pages well and anything you do in the UI is sluggish. I also noticed that the gestures are really slow in firefox (and slow on windows). Opera recognizes gestures instantly.
