The IE renderer is wrapped up in an ActiveX Component. It and the key dependence DLLs are not loaded on my system at startup. Grab a memory walker program and check it out for yourself. True, MS has added many miscallaneous parts of IE to DLLs like comdlg32.dll and olepro32.dll, etc... But those are only contain the supporting functions, like look-ahead typing, etc... The renderer is loaded, when you click on iexplore.exe

I have a pretty good understanding of how IE works. I also have a fairly good understanding of how Moz works. That is why I am concerned that having removed the debug code (there isn't that much of it there), Mozilla will still have a pretty long startup time.
