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."

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?
