"page load times" I said "page load times". I did not say "new window creation time". I'm all for improving that. But as long as we don't regress page layout time I'm fine with it. Like I said, I don't wait for pages to lay out. I do notice a (minimal) lag in new window creation. For me it's a tiny bit less than a second for a new window and less than two seconds for a new window with usable content. IE is about 1/3 second for new window and 2 seconds for usable content (win2K PIII 650 with 128 MB RAM, commonly referred to as the suite spot in computing for the first half of 2001, high end in the first half of 2000 for laptops). We do have some improving to do here. I'd love to see our new window creation time cut in half or in 1/3 but I wouldn't hold 1.0 for it. I might consider holding 2.0 for it. There are far too many other areas that I'd rather see improved to waste my time thinking about the small handful seconds lost. --Asa
