Mozilla & Gecko clones Microsoft wants to help aid in the development of Firefox. It sounds pretty scary, doesn't it? If you're still here, let me tell you that it's not as bad as it seems. Sam Ramjii, Director of Microsoft's Open Source Software Lab, has extended an invitation to the Firefox and Thunderbird developers asking them if they'd like to visit the company's open source research center. Microsoft's hopes are that, in a four-day span, the company can provide the open source developers with enough information to get the popular web browser running smoothly on Windows Vista.

Also having used firefox on different os's "I can state form extensive experience that this is just so"

Firefox runs like a dog on anything but windows, which is sad but anyway.

It loads more quickly under Windows than it does under Linux or OS/2 (in my estimation), but once loaded its overall perfomance is about the same on each.

I tend to use it on 200MHz boxes at home. I'd notice a large performance difference, believe me...
