How is Luakit? I currently have the following installed on Raspbian: Midori, Chromuim, IceWeasel and another one I cant remember off hand.

Luakit runs exceptionally well. It is based on webkit so its mainly based on keyboard shortcuts which can help a ton and its even capable of running small flash scenes well.

Chrome 22 too slow and painful to use !!!!!
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

It seems that most of the browsers tested are within a few point of each other. I personally find that Chromium takes ages to start and seems to constantly lock-up for a few seconds.

Thinking of maybe using Luakit

Yes Luakit does seem faster once the navigation by keyboard is mastered https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Luakit
