Well not to spread anti M$ propaganda or anything, but it seems to me that getting the window up was a priority with Microsoft. One thing I'll say about MS applications is that the throw the splash screen up faster than any other program I've used. And that's the point of splash screens, to make you THINK it's loaded faster, when it's still chugging along and loading. Perhaps this is also why IE loads the window with no functionality. I mean it's THERE but it's not. Observably using windows 95 (clean) and comparing N4 to IE4, both actually become usable in about the same amount of time. IE throws up the splash screen faster, and it shows the window faster, but you can USE them both in about the same amount of time. That's with 107 fonts BTW.

Either way, K-meleon actually loads faster than pretty much any browser I've used other than Opera.
