I think you're confusing disk space and RAM. Mozilla on win32 is currently in the 5 to 6 MB of disk space range. This is the size of the compressed binary available at <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org.> This can already be trimmed down by a MB or two if you remove all of the test executables included in the \bin directory (the reason that the installer.exe version is smaller even with the extra install software). RAM usage is not Mozilla's strong point right now but there are many people working very hard (including external to Netscape developers and quality assurance testers) to get the RAM footprint under conroll. Hope this clears it up some.
