U30s are reasonably fast machines with 250 MHz CPUs, and the Creator card, while not the fastest card around should be a decent performer, so I think your problem lies not in the hardware, but in the software.

I've no expereince with Debian on UltraSPARC hardware, but I'd look hard into the video driver, and I'd also suggest running the same browser remotely (from your PC) to isolate CPU performance from video performance.

Under a recent Solaris (8 or 9) that is a fine desktop machine, but it will feel a bit pokey in comparison to a "modern" PC in the GHz range.

If you insist on running Debian, you may not get the best performance from your hardware...
