#16 Quicklaunch is depended on footprint/leak problems

Hence the need for reducing them asap. Any system with less than 128 MB RAM is unable to use quicklaunch without severe performance degradation due to swapping. Creating a mail message, reading news or opening a few browser windows increase footprint to unacceptable levels (for a 64, even a 128MB machine). For Win9x, it's worse than that: system might become unstable at the threshold of swapping (probably this is bad OS memory management). Nevertheless, quicklaunch is a great feature. I expect it to become a cross-platform feature.
