Friend, i don't think you quite understand exactly what IE is built into. It's NOT just an .exe that loads some DLL's; IE is a _intergral_ part of certain system DLL's. Please, do not take my word for it. Here's a link to a CNN story (from an _Infoworld_ story) on removing IE: <http://www.cnn.com/TECH/c…ing/9903/09/removeie.idg/> And if you go here: <http://www.idg.net/go.cgi?id=20213> -- read the other IE colums by this guy from the Mar. 1999 period. He asks Mirosoft folks it the programs at <http://www.98lite.net> referenced in his eariler column remove IE, and they say NO. It's very, VERY intergrated. So, when people talk about browser bloat, I know they don't know what they are talking about. That we have a HTML render that is, in its essence, only 2-3 megs WITH debugging code is beyond amzing. If it's slow for you, I'm sorry. But it is PRE-BETA. Please, stop judging it on a PRE-BETA, on your personal macine. I ran M10-15 on my old machine, a P120!! I upgraded...to a P233, and it's not as fast as IE, but I also choose to acknoweldge it for the pre-beta it is, not as finished code like IE.
