Mozilla & Gecko clones "Today, the Mozilla organization is preparing to release the first release candidate for version 2 of their popular Firefox web browser. Firefox 2 RC1 is available in binary form for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X (the latter a Universal Binary for both PPC and Intel systems). The Windows download comes in at 5.7 MB and runs on Windows 98, ME, NT 4, 2000, or XP. It ran without issue on my copy of Windows Vista RC1."

True, but OS's and applications are different. Usually people are a lot less tollerant of a slow OS than they are of a slow application.

It's extremely rare to find an application that, over time, doesn't become larger and slower.

Normally after they realise how huge it's become they start calling it a "suite".
