Mozilla 0.9 Released!
Monday May 7th, 2001
mozilla.org today released milestone 0.9, which moves us a big step closer to a 1.0 release. The 0.9 release contains some of the largest changes in quite some time, with rewrites of the imglib, memory and disk cache, message view in mail, bookmark manager, Personal Security Manager 2 (PSM2), and the help viewer. Many of these rewrites have helped greatly enhance Mozilla's performance since 0.8.1, with the Mail front end rewrite and PSM2 being two of the largest improvements. For those of you who use Java, the JVM is now loaded on first use, rather than when you first start up, leading to much quicker startup.

I guess you have an old machine. For me the first startup of IE on my win2K machine with a PIII650 and 128 MB RAM is about 3.5 seconds and then about 1 second for all later launches (start page set to about:blank). The first startup for Mozilla takes about 5 seconds and about 2 seconds for all later launches. I don't consider this to be much of a problem at all.
