    Loading time? On my 486, about 10 seconds on Win 3.1. Its enhancements are
crap, the OS it runs on is crap, and in general, it stands no chance against a
real web browser. "Explorer enhanced" is something you rarely see nowadays,
considering that Netscape 2.0 is the pre* browser.

Please.  I wasn't talking about Win3.1 (which doesn't run the latest IE).
I have both IE 2.0 and NS 2.0 installed on my Win95 machine, which has
loads of RAM.  IE loads instantly, but NS still takes like 10 seconds.  NS
is bloated, slow, memory-leaky, and poorly integrated into Win95.  IE is
smaller, faster, better-looking, better-integrated, and I've run it for days
without exhausting my machine.  So don't give this "Real Web Browser(tm)" BS.
Like it or not, MSIE is a *nice* piece of work.

That's why the ASCII was so well aligned and looks so good.
