As I said, with Firebug disabled, performance is fine for me.

If the index is simply getting too big for some other browsers, another 
option is to break up the index and selectively load parts of it on 
demand.  (I'm being vague saying "load" here, because I don't know 
whether the bottleneck would be I/O or JS/GC.)  That would still use a 
normal Web browser and not require a Scheme server, but the 
implementation would be more complicated, and there would be latency 
issues compared to a browser that could keep the entire index loaded.
