First, the rendering engine is Gecko (NGLayout) and it _is_ lightning fast. Necko is the network library. Gecko is a very light-weight and fast rendering engine but the rest of mozilla is still being written and optimized to take advantage of Gecko. Mozilla uses Gecko to display more than just content. Gecko also renders the UI and this is where top notch engineers are working hard to make changes that will speed things up. I think it's a safe bet that they're up to the task.
