Mozilla needs cross-platform speed. Plain and simple. It needs to out-run IE on Win and Mac, and at least out-perform Netscape 4.x on Linux (and it doesn't right now). Moz used to load things immediately, but now it delays until the full page is loaded. We need to realize that some servers are slow and will never deliver all the images or whatever it may be waiting for. If we can get the memory footprint, stability, and speed issues resolved, then we can define a Mozilla 1.0.
