The worst part is that the "view as web page" option for folders seems
like a nice idea.  I have no idea why it should make things so
sluggish.  I like things like having document information pop up in the
right hand bar when I click on a document, or being given thumb nails,
or be able to play tunes, along with all the other summary information
it offers at various times.  

And, I see no reason why those features should be able to be rather
snappy, even on machines like 486/66s or early pentiums.

However, you are certainly right that turning those features off when
not needed will make things more snappy.
