|I'd run with T-R-A.|
Firefox 2 is way out of date. Opera is right up to date. I've got it on my W98SE for those very reasons and it works just fine.
Like any new browser it takes a little while to get used to it but it is well worth the effort. I've used IE, Firefox, and Seamonkey on various machines - Opera compares quite nicely and is probably the only current browser that supports W98.
