It takes **way*** less memory than NS 4.7 (maybe just because the JVM has fewer leaks?). It's been running 2 days here and is never over 25-27 megs.
Repainting on the UI and pages seems a little lagged (all the fancy themes I guess) and one theme - while it is quite good looking (Orbit) causes the "To:" widget to disappear - there' no way to enter the address of the person you're sending the mail to! I tried to submit a bug report on this but ...
"Orbit theme breaks mail message composition widgets" ... probably won't get high priority ;-) My bet is that there will be *tons* of these little theme buglets that cause lots of headaches. There'll soon have to be "official" QA reviewed themes.
