How good is the performance of this for things like Firefox?  I've been
tempted to switch to this model on all of my systems (only running web
browsers inside a VM), since that's probably the largest attack point for
a system that doesn't run services, but I know that running Firefox over
the network is almost impossibly slow and was wary of doing a bunch of
work to get this set up only to discover that the same applies in VMs.
