For me it seems pretty instantaneous.

Belief != knowledge

The pause is because the browser has to get the new page before it can 
show it.

> Is there anyway of viewing the redirect page before it quickly disappears?

For example:

$ curl -i http://ontario.ca/mininglands
HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Server: IBM-PROXY-WTE/5.0.2
