#1 Mozilla performance observation

For a while I thought Mozilla (i use 1.1) was faster than IE5+, but then after using Win2k (IE 5.5) for a couple days (normaly in linux) i noticed something that makes IE feel snappier. The pages may not load faster in the complete load time, but they BEGIN to load faster than Mozilla. Mozilla always seems to download most of the page before it starts loading (takes a second or two on my dsl), but IE seems to flip right over to the new page as it beings to download...

I wish you guys would tweak that aspect of it... make that initial being-to-load thing faster... That would make the browser feel much lighter and more responsive..

Just a thought..

otherwise awesome browser, oh, and first post! ;P
