Mozilla developers are quite aware of what Microsoft do with IE.

The fact is, that IE loads at startup quickly, then consumes your memory permanently, at the expense of the performance of other programs on your system.

Microsoft have started a trend that should not be continued. Taken to the extremes, what do you think would happen if all programs loaded at startup?
