> The fact that your son notices NS6 running seemingly sluggish under Windows IS BECAUSE OF XUL!!!

****THAT IS 100% CORRECT****

Mike... Mike... Mike... the sluggish nature of NS6 in Win32 is due to the infamous cross-platform (XP) user-interface... known to those few as XUL!

I could care less about how NS6 performs on Linux... an OS who's UI scheme is cheesy at best.

We are talking *Windows* here...

Now you can believe that the earth is flat all you want... but it has *no* bearing on the fact that it is round!

The only logic here that is misplaced is your own, I'm afraid. I don't pretend to misunderstand any logic... I understand it perfectly and have given you the answer. One that you simply choose not to accept.

The answer is not FUD... but fact.

NS6 will *never* perform as well as other native Win32 apps... period. The End!!!

Sooner or later you will come to accept that... unfortunately, maybe not until NS 6.73/7.0 is released. :)
