I've used IE5 on a Mac G3 and yes, it is abysmally slow. I'm sure Mozilla is fast, no make that *not slow* on a Mac.

A while ago Hyatt said on the newsgroups that the slower your computer is, the more noticable the speed differences are. He said it had something to do with timers, unfortunetely, he didn't provide a bug number.

Since I seem to be the only one championing a fast Moz on [really] low end machines, I'll point you to Bug 91643: All Mozilla windows frozen during some stages of loading a page <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=91643> . This is an architectural problem so it's not going to get fixed any time soon.
