I\\\\\\\'ve been happily using Mozilla as my primary browser for months now, and I really like it. I\\\\\\\'ve had it open for days at a time without crashing.

Of course I\\\\\\\'m hoping it will speed up, but mostly I\\\\\\\'m hoping it\\\\\\\'s memory usage will decrease. It\\\\\\\'s memory consumption just grows and grows. Right now, Moz 8.1 has been open most of the day (6 hours), has 2 windows open, and is consuming 75MB on w2k.

Other that that, I thinks it\\\\\\\'s the cheese!!

Great job!
