Are we slim yet? No, once you drop legacy support and build for the future and not the past, then you will be slim.

Its for tracking memory usage , and dropping support for Xp (which aint legacy , it is still in use) would come in "are we modern yet" rather :p

I would agree if there wasn't already a build for 6.0 on Mozilla's FTP.

Nice to see that once again Firefox is becoming primarily a Windows browser with Mac and Linux users supported by accident rather than actually deliberately designing for the platform. Promises of OpenGL accelerated layers in Firefox 5.0 and low and behold they've failed to deliver - why aren't I surprised.

Feel free to name ONE aspect of IE9 that is slimmer than Fx4.

I don't know about OS X, but to be honest, it's hard to deliberately design GPU acceleration for a platform (Linux) with such a high level of fragmentation and crappy graphics drivers.

True, but there is no excuse when it comes to Mac OS X - a single OpenGL library to target at and even then they (Firefox developers) couldn't do it right.
