I've been using Seamonkey from the Mozilla site with mixed experience. 
It handles graphics/videos better than Firefox, but goes off to lala 
land chewing up cpu cycles to 95% for minutes at a time.  Top indicates 
that it is seamonkey-bin that is loading the cpu, so I doubt that it is 
a CentOS (5.4) issue.
