Best Web Browser for Win 7 X64 bit?

Hi
I am looking to lighten up my machine, I mean change from Firefox 3.5.4, which I do like but it uses alot of RAM, so looking through all around and I am confused as to which one to try?
If there is one which incorperates a mail client it would be great bonus, played with Seamonkey but could not get mail to work.

Any advice?

Thanks

I never used it but a google search came up with a result of a browser called Opera, which apparently also incorperates a mail client in the browser.

"Opera offers an e-mail client built right into your favorite browser. Opera Mail powerfully organizes, indexes and sorts your messages while transforming your Opera Web browser into a complete communication tool." ~opera.com

Hope this browser works for you.

I've attached the latest version of this web browser below

Heres a review of the beta, which is very close to the final release I posted above:

Personal opinion here.

If you are looking to lighten up your machine and get more speed, then I suggest Google Chrome.

Stable/Offical Build
Beta Build
Developer Build

Its fast, lightweight, and gets the job done.

I am playing with Opera, looks good, but the main thing I want is to be able to save mail's for multiple sending and it does not seem to be able to do it?
I also tried Chrome, but that put x3 instances of usage on the task manager, ended up using more than fifefox!
Maybe I try Thunderbird? And keep Firefox?
