Always found K-Meleon to be pretty fast on an older XP system. Could also check out Html Viewer 3 which is quite light while keeping up with most modern web standards.

High end systems is where Chrome shines, on low end systems Firefox is more responsive.

Isn't PaleMoon pretty much an optimized Firefox?

From my experience, Chrome seems to perform very well on slower systems.
