oh i agree... like i said: shame everything else around it is slow.
but the core rendering itself seems very fast - grab something
complicated cached in your local proxy or resize mozilla.

yep.. everything about mozilla is dog slow - unusable if you have any
other browser installed. but that's the only big thing wrong with it,
and i presume the mozilla.org builds (esp. the nightlies) have tonnes
so it's dog slow at the moment, but presuming that will be fixed, it
looks very very promising. And i agree with the other comment about
how the promise of getting away from the old NS4 codebase.
