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 http://www.mozilla.org/releases/. 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).
