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.
