Well there will be more performance improvement coming from the mozilla side. If they make it into the next NS6.xx iteration, it would probably closer to IE's performance (I dream that it would be better than IE in their win98 test, but that's just a dream ;p )

overall, I'd say that this is not bad. Funny that browserwatch hasn't mentioned this yet.

This has probably the cutest headline (though I disagree with the headline) <http://www.computeruser.c…news/01/08/10/news12.html>

The comments here are even cuter ;p <http://slashdot.org/artic…8/2254226&mode=thread>

" But at least this version of the browser is quicker to load than its predecessor, which clocked around 20 seconds before a working browser replaced the splash screen. Now you'll only have to wait for around five seconds." <http://www.computerbuyer.…/newsarticle.php3?id=2675>

"Netscape likes to keeps its browser's version number ahead of Microsoft's." <http://www.pcplus.co.uk/article.asp?id=30503>

Where does this guy get his info?

"It appears to be based on Mozilla 0.93, the open-source Web browser, and uses the new Gecko display engine." <http://www.wininformant.c…Index.cfm?ArticleID=22090>

enough rant from me.
