I use blackbox too, but I had gnome/kde installed once for advocacy
reasons; my class 'mates' was unfortunately utterly unimpressed with
blackbox... I installed gnome/kde to show them that they *could* have
nice pretty graphics even if they tried installing linux.
Unfortunately, it was futile. 

In the days before Mozilla became very usable, I tried Galeon, and
Konqeror. I liked Galeon's UI better, but went with Konqueror in the end
because it was less tied to KDE internals that Galeon was with GNOME. I
don't know if this is still the case, but earlier you could not start
Galeon without starting a *whole load* of GNOME cruft in addition
that would persist running after you closed the browser. At least with
Konqueror the extra cruft shut down when you closed it (after a while,
at least). This is quite some time ago now and very possibly fixed.

Whatever floats your boat, I don't really care.
