I'm using a 120 Mhz machine. It takes close to 90 seconds to launch 
vs. 4.7's 15-20 seconds. It seems to take it (6.2) about 10 seconds 
to respond to a menu or link click. On version 6.1, 4 out of 5 
attempts to access any URL caused it to return a blank page. After 
trying 6.2 (which I *really would love* to make my primary browser), 
it took so long to wade though the molasses that I gave up.

That having been said: Your mileage may vary, and I may yet find the 
patience to try it again one day soon.

Our best destiny, as planetary cohabitants, is the development
of what has been called "species consciousness" - something over
and above nationalisms, blocs, religions, ethnicities.
