The default browser is a definitely a work in progress but there's always Firefox/Iceweasel.
first of all i must declare that i agree with wolven that is good choice to use gtk apps with xfce because there are no need to run extra qt libs
on the other hand the use of kde as desktop enviroment resault to use only qt apps
i like this policy because leads to very light and intergrated enviroments
my previous post about missing fanctionallity in xfce4 aim to underline that
YES XFCE4 IS LIGHT BUT WHEN YOU ADD SOME NICE(+HEAVY) GTK APPS IT BECOME AS FAST AS GNOME
#aptitude install firestarter
in gnome (=+1 dependency)
in xfce4(=+32 dependecies if remember right)
so if you try to add some other gtk apps the resalt will be a DE as slow as gnome
thats the reason i dislike xfce4
the only reason to use someone xfce is an old PC
and also he must choose carefully the apps (eg evince -> xpdf pidgin->amsn openoffice->abiword deluge->transmition and so go on)
the resalt will be a fast DE but with limited functionallity
