On the other hand if you open multiple FireFox's, they're all fast. So 
it's all relative stuff, but I take your point.

Single window Fx vs single window IE7 and Fx will usually out perform in 
all rendering.

Also IE hasn't been updated for MacOS in about 6 years, and won't even 
run on Intel Mac :) On a Mac, Safari is the faster browser, followed by 
Opera then FireFox. But I like the flexibility of FireFox, and the fact 
that it is identical (same renderer) on all platforms. If something 
works in Fx on my Mac, you can be 99.9% sure it'll work on anything that 
can run that version of Fx.

On thing Fx is VERY VERY bad at is how it handles Flash. Whether this is 
a Flash or FireFox fault I dont know, but you only need to open a couple 
of full screen Flash 9 movies in Fx tabs and watch Fx start to become 
really sluggish. This just doesn't happen with IE7 on my testbed machine 
(which is a fraction of the speed of my dev machine). I really open that 
either Adobe or Mozilla fix this issue in Fx 3.
