I've noticed Galeon is significantly faster than Mozilla -- at least in the user interface.  Granted I'm using an '040/40/128M rather than an '030/40/16M.  I suspect page rendering would be about the same as Mozilla though.  I sometimes use Dillo for just browsing around and have Galeon running in a different workspace.  When I come upon a page Dillo doesn't render well I stick the URL into Galeon.
