The Fix is In!
Sunday February 27th, 2000
For those of you on Win9x, grab today's (2-27-00) build. The performance fix is in (the disabling of timing code) that results in a substantial speedup. For example, in today's build, Tinderbox loads in 5 seconds on my line, vs. 14.56 seconds on the 2-25-00 nightly. Reload: 3.9 seconds, vs. 14.23 seconds. Other pages show the same speedup (and you can run two builds side-by-side to see for yourself).
#7 Then we all suffer...

The reason IE loads faster than Communicator is that it loads many dll's at bootup - something that I would do without -- if MS gave me a choice.
IE certainly isn't lean by any measure, and Mozilla is already faster in many other respects.
