Mozilla doesn't take over the whole display and spawn a load of pointless
daemons listening on the network going "come and help yourself" to all the
crackers out there, for a start.

I'm not overly happy about Mozilla's bloat, but it's a massive improvement
over Netscape 4.7x that I was using previously, and it's not otherwise awful
enough for me to go and look for another browser.

Yes, that's pretty much how I do it. Sometimes it requires some development
tool out of unstable that needs similar treatment, and so on. But they can
usually all be made to work if you try hard enough.

Massive builds is the only thing that tends to be bad news for my diskspace.
It's partly why my machine has gained a cheap and nasty 120GB IDE disk.
