If I'm not mistaken, the reason IE loads so fast is due to pre-loading during the OS bootup. When you have 90% of IE already in memory, it doesn't take long to bring up the last 10%. However, there is the tradeoff of loading down your system with too much pre-loading going on. It's all perception and no substance when it comes to the initial load times any more.......Mozilla and Pheonix are pretty fast now.
