We've got a new poll up, for your polling pleasure. It deals with the new Quick Launch feature, and we wanted to know what you think of it. If you think it's buggy, or have improvements, you can note that here, or in the poll's talkback. Poll away!

So what about the new feeling that people with 32-64 MB of memory will get after installing Mozilla (or Netscape 6.x where x > 1) when they discover that ever since installing Mozilla/Netscape, EVERYTHING on their computer runs slower (due to less avail RAM, more virtual-memory swapping, but they don't realize this). Not the sort of feeling we really want to be spreading around. Not for the sake of trying to fool users in the same evil way that Microsoft does with IE, and give them the wrong impression (not to mention leading programmers down a very bad path for future applications).

-turbo should be an option, not default, and only after being presented with a clear explaination of what happens when you enable it and what negative side-effects can result. I certainly know _I'll_ never use it.
