It's a little sluggish on my clamshell G3 iBook (466SE) running Jaguar -
even with 384Meg RAM.  My issue is that people are suddenly complaining
about it when it's the best out there in my opinion.  I mean what else you
going to use?  IE?  Netscape?  Opera?  Each of those are worse hogs than
Firefox.  I'm not saying Firefox couldn't be better but geeze...

Well obviously the performance issues are involving in-browser pr0n movies!
Though I would think you'd keep that kind of "performance problem" to
yourself...  ;-)
