Sorry I caught this late, but I'm not sure what you guys are talking about
here (eg how long it takes for the home page to load after you click on FF,
or what).

I can guarantee you my firefox (1.0.7, as well as previous version 1.0.6)
loads web pages *faster* than IE, especially my startup page (but that is
irrevelent, because FF seems to load all web pages faster, while I'm
surfing).

So what are you guys talking about here. I can easily prove what I am
saying (but I can't show you- lol). In other words it takes considerably
and noticeably longer to load my start page in IE than in firefox.

Pete
