Chances are you have used a Java app disguised as a real one. LimeWire is an example. MacOS X runs Java apps as if they were native ones (Java is listed as a GUI toolkit for that platform).

The only problem is a lack of a good native Java compiler. gcj is getting better, but it isn't complete yet.

As for the "who think that Mozilla is just too fast" comment.. well maybe. I ran M18 and Netscape 6 when I had a 233MHz Cyrix MII, and I don't think Gecko was slow back then.
