Cool.. I stand corrected for the parts where I was wrong, and my hat is off to you for doing all this research. Very nice indeed! :) I'm very surprised about the UI preloading part, cause I've coded some MFC apps and typically they load very very quickly. It's usually internal data juggling that makes loading slow.. Possibly, the UI part also contains stuff like history, bookmarks etc., which is probably slower to load and process than the actual widgets and windows.

So, how many megabytes are in fact pre-loaded by IE that are not used by Mozilla? Did I understand correctly that it was only 1.93MB? That's surprisingly little..
