...and correct CSS2? And <LINK> tags? And XUL applications? And mail? And IM? And image blocking? etc. etc. etc.

Nobody EVER questioned the fact that you could take an arbitrary benchmark utility and throw it at different programs; the thing people have debated is how you compare like with like. IE is FAR, FAR, FAR slower on Linux than Mozilla is, for example.

No doubt you'll find that on a 486 netscape 2.0 puts up a very good fight against ie6 - look at it render pages almost instantly in comparison!!!
