I've heard that one before. A lot of times. Maybe for us geeky engineer types. But I don't see a lot of people running out to stores, plopping down $150, opening up their computer cases, and installing memory chips just so they can run a new, free browser.

If memory footprint doesn't matter, maybe we can forget the pretences and accept Mozilla only for new computing environments ala Windows XP. In fact, maybe the Windows XP launch with all of the upgrades and computer tradeins required for its success can be the compelling event that makes Mozilla a valid choice.

BTW, it rocks on a 1.4mhz Pentium with 512MB of memory :-)
