I'd have to agree with you that it is nice and fast and lightweight. A
quick comparison from top on my ...(furtively looks to see if Dave is
around)... AMD64 Linux box shows me:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND

26116 caleb 16 0 37044 19m 21m S 0.0 1.9 0:00.72 firefox-bin
That's a HUGE difference in resource consumption.
To make this on topic for [rescue], this is a modern browser that is
usable on older hardware (I use it as my main browser on my Indy).
