I still have an old pentium 166mhz. I found some old SIMMs in various places, so I have 64 megs of ram in it now. mozilla is a little sluggish in linux, but a little better in windows. Galeon runs a little better still. This didn't used to be the case. the 1.0 series seems a lot faster to me than the early 0.9's. I'm wondering if 1.1 would be comparable to galeon based on 1.0.0 or not. Anyway, I'd suggest dropping the performance req. Maybe recommend what is listed now, but a 166 mhz processor is enough to run mozilla w/o pain.
