while I think 6.1-6.5 will be a much better demonstration of what Mozilla's been working so hard on, I don't think N6.0 is that bad at all.. what surprised me was when I minimize N6 and let it be for a couple minutes, memory usage drops to about 4megs. when I maximize it it pops right up, no delays. This is perfectly acceptable, so my question is this. How hard would it be to build a "Startup loader" thingy that loads Mozilla into memory but doesn't show a window until the icon is clicked on. That would eliminate the huge startup wait that seems to be one of the largest useablility complains (see CNet's N6 Article).
