I take it back. Yes, Camino is faster than Firefox 0.9.3. However, I just downloaded Firefox 1.0 Preview Release, and (excuse my, er, French) Holy Fuck (or is that Fuque?). I know it’s not scientific, but the Firefox 1.0 Preview Release starts in a single Dock “bounce,” compared with 2 for Camino 0.8.1, and 4 for 0.9.3. If this is any sort of preview of things to come in the real 1.0 release, Firefox will (does) crush the competition. It hardly seems fair.
Now, what can be done about Thunderbird’s abysmal startup speed? Anybody? Anybody?
