A CPU friendly alternative to Firefox in Ubuntu?

I've just installed Ubuntu in a development VM on ESXi.  It has 8 GB of CPU assigned and I have a red warning that 6.4 GB are being used.  I ran "top" and got the following results:

 Looked like Firefox/Web Content was using a lot of CPU (although it was only 5 tabs).  So, I killed Firefox, waited a while and then it went down to 0.026 GB.
