#12 Gecko still fits on one floppy (right?)

Remember that Mozilla is very componentizable - aka developers can embed only those portions of Mozilla they desire per appliance - and last time I checked, the Gecko rendering engine still fits on one standard floppy disk. As to M9, remember that until the Feature-freeze date, Mozilla will not undergo the heavy optimizations that will make it smaller and even faster and more efficient.

And Moz is only about 5MB now, albeit without security software, which NS necessarily could not make part of Mozilla, and added features like WinAmp and RealPlayer. But I'll warrant even the full NS 5.0 will come in under 10 MB.
