Mozilla & Gecko clones "The Mozilla development community has rolled out the latest beta of its Firefox 3.6 browser. In addition to the usual round of bug fixes, Firefox 3.6 beta version 5, comes with a number of new features and performance enhancements. The browser offers the ability for users to easily reskin the browsers with a new visual theme. The new version can also run scripts asynchronously, which should speed load times of pages that have multiple scripts. The new release also aims to appease cutting-edge developers, with support for various new standards."

Works great. No performance hit at all. And it isolates the browser from any plugin crashes. You can easily kill a misbehaving plugin without affecting the browser session. Fedora uses nspluginwrapper even for 32 bit, IIRC.
