#18 SSL & bookmarks

SSL *works*. The problem is that it's painfully slow. If you try an SSL site with IE and then with Mozilla, you'll notice that it's about 30 times slower with Mozilla. There's a bug filed on this but I don't remember it's number. It's one that has a lot of votes too, but it still remains unfixed... I'm sure people are working on it, that's not what I meant. I'm just saying that SSL is more or less broken for serious use (like if you need SSL in your daily work).

Bookmarks.. Well, once you get them there, they work. The problem is that bookmark management is seriously broken. Drag & Drop works sporadically. The tree widget doesn't update every time so you have to resize windows. Scrollbars dissapear. Copy paste loses data. Paste sometimes misses it's target.. Should I go on? And you know, bugs are filed on all of these, so they are known. They just aren't FIXED yet.

This is why I find it so ridiculous that people can sit there and claim that IE5.5 is getting it's ass kicked by Mozilla. Not by a long shot! Not for another six months!
