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."

This comment has caused a lot of discussion. In general, I would disagree that Mozilla is "awfully slow". It is quite responsive on this here P-III 500 and my P-II at home.

However, as a former Opera user and a full-time Mozilla user, I notice a big difference in response times between when I hit the back button and the last visited page appears. When used on the same machine, Opera is lightning-quick, while Mozilla always has a relatively lengthy pause. Sometimes it's several seconds.

I'm not complaining, mind you. I'm just saying that I *notice* it, and I wish I didn't. I've tried changing cache settings and I did some quick google and bugzilla searches. No dice.

Is anyone here able to address this? Anyone got a solution or a recommendation or a link to some discussion of this?
