A lot of people seem to think NS6 is chuggy on Windows, and I agree with them. However saying that its chuggy is not really helpfuly. What is required if for people to tie down why and, more importantly, where its chuggy.

It seems to me (Windows 2000, Geforce DDR) that the browser is okay, but mail and news is nasty, not to the point of being unusable, but to the point that I'd rather use Outlook Excess.

Basically, the problem is snapyness. Everthing works, but some work needs to be done on making stuff respond to the user quicker. It son't matter if communicating with the IMAP server is chuggy, IMAP servers don't notice these things, but users do.
