I downloaded the latest nightly build last night and I have to say it it much faster than previous and seems as fast or faster than Opera. I havent used it for long enough to identify any stability problems though.
Anyone else keeping tabs on the nightly builds?
In my humble opinion it is a great improvement from version 6.0. But it is not as fast as Opera yet! It takes almost 20 seconds to load on my PC and almost 10 on my Mac.
I am glad Netscape "transition" made me discover Opera. It became my preferred browser for overall job stuff.
Simply beats me
I am using the "quick start" feature where it loads on windows start so that it appears to launch faster - hence it sitting in the task tray if anyone was wondering.
I've just opened 16 windows and mem usage is 62M ram 55M swap.
The same windows opened in Opera use mem of 59M ram 68M swap.
It looks like mozilla is really starting to head in the right direction.
My advice is to skip Netscape and grab 0.9.3 unless you need/want the NS additions, such as AIM integration and the spell-checker.
