Mike,

Would you just give it up with these paranoid delusions.

NS6 running like shit in Windows has *nothing* to do with Internet Explorer. And anyone else out there that thinks it does needs their head checked.

NS6 runs like shit because it is *shit*. It's buggy, unoptimized, feature broken code that is, to make things worse, wrapped in XUL.

Point of interest that you should know about: I installed NS6 on a ROMIIse partition... that's Windows98se with *no* IE & Co. anywhere. IE is *completely* gone.

The point is that NS6 was just as slow, just as buggy, ad infinitum... whether I ran it from ROMIIse, Win98se, WinME, or Win2K... never tried it on NT4.

Cheers,

-Bruce
