New to this release are full-screen mode for Linux, BiDi Hebrew improvements, Arabic shaping improvements for Linux, and significant improvements to Venkman, the best cross-platform JavaScript debugger on the planet. Get your binaries and release notes at And if you're confused about all these alpha and beta releases (and what ever happened to that 1.0 branch?) then take a look at the nice picture available at the Mozilla Development Roadmap."

OK: Startup times for Mozilla: 7 seconds, 5 secconds, 5 seconds. For IE 5.5: 1 second + something, <1 second, <1 second The difference in startup-times when using Mozilla's QuickLaunch is negligible.

The large html-file I tested is manual.html, the manual-file of MySQL 3.23.47. This file has a size of 2.2MB. It is stored locally on the harddrive, which is a FAT32-partition. It takes Mozilla between 46 and 50 seconds to load that file (I mean the time between pressing "open" in the Open File... - dialog and the complete rendering of the file.). The same task takes 12 seconds with IE 5.5 on my machine. And scrolling is also faster with IE: I took the file manual_toc.html form the MySQL-reference and scrolled the whole file down using the down-arrow of the scrollbars: With IE this took 8 seconds, with Mozilla it took 48 seconds. (That file has 84 KB).
