I've been using Conkeror (based on Xulrunner/Firefox) for a while now,
and like it enough to stick with it. It's completely keyboard driven,
which I love. It's also not super stable, nor does it seem to be
actively maintained, which I don't love. If anyone has recommendations
for better keyboard-driven browsers, I'd love to hear them...
