I don't think your tests were accurate. I just did a sample test on several pages and IE came out well ahead in starting up and rendering the page. I've tried <http://www.zdnetonebox.com>, <http://www.cnn.com> and <http://www.news.com.> The netted Mozilla 1 second advantage compared to the simple start up test.

Regardless of the semantics, the startup time is hugely important. My work day consists of opening and closing the browser many times (i guess, I do other stuff as well), having to wait for moz to open while ie comes up instantly is ridiculous.
