Mozilla0.9.5 is probably the slowest browser I've ever come across.
As an example, on my K6-2 550Mhz & 256Mb RAM box, when I'm in
"Edit/Preferences" and click on "Fonts", it takes 2.5 seconds for the fonts
menu to actually appear. C'mon!
Again, in my experience, Konqueror is somewhat faster than Mozilla, while
Netscape4.77 is the fastest. On Windows, IE5.0 was much faster more stable
than Netscape4.*, so it makes me wonder if one can run IE under Wine.
