Or 3 tabs if you're running 64-bit firefox...  :)  Switching to chromium 
was a big help, even if Google for some reason feels the need to 
redistribute 508MB (uncompressed source) of third-party libraries in it. 
    Oddly enough they don't seem to distribute it as a static binary 
which would be only slightly more inconvenient.  :)

But at least it runs - and it even seems to gracefully handle having 
more than one window open by the same user on different displays, which 
Firefox does not.
