The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

MSE works very well with Avast! Free Antivirus. Avast is a lean running program so you won't have a resource issue. I run Avast and MSE in tandem on my XP machine.
I switched to Chrome over FireFox a while back. Chrome doesn't crash on me and uses very little resources from my older computer. I like Chrome because I can do an incognito window from any chrome on a customer's or friend's machine, sign into my account and access my browser, favorites, google docs, google phone, etc natively.
I should add that my XP machine is a dual core intel Lenovo 3000 N100 with 4Gigs of RAM.
If you're still not sure, try both Firefox and Chrome and remove the one you use less.

maybe you should try searching for a lightweight browser? Using http://www.makeuseof.com/answers/browser-lightest-memory-cpu/ I can see the following are suggested (excluding Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari etc)
Previous research I've done shows K-Melon and Midori and favourable for Linux-based OSs but I've heard maxthon mentioned often for Windows OSs
btw, the latest firefox on my old pentium 4 @ 3GHz with HT doesn't go well with multimedia (but I do have about 10 add-ons)
