I happen to like the way mozilla treats character/line rendering.
That same piecemeal rendering that can appear slow on fast sites can also appear faster on slow sites. One of my biggest gripes with IE is that when a site is slow, it can take forever for something I need to be displayed--when I am looking for a specific link, graphic, or whatever, I don\'t always need to wait for the entire page or line to be rendered before a part of it is useful to me.
Perhaps I don\'t know what I\'m talking about. All I do know is that I have made similar observations about rendering in the past, and that I appreciate the way mozilla renders pages. Maybe what I like is something completely different.
Just a thought. Not to add things, but how difficult would it be to add character vs. line rendering as an option? Perhaps not worth the wait.
