Persistant HourGlass

On most web pages I visit, K-M gives me an hourglass that takes forever to go away. On your own home page, I see "sending request to Sourceforge.net" for a very long time.

It's getting old hitting the stop button on every page. Is this related to setting cookies? Any help would be appreciated. Otherwise, I really like this browser.

Win2000
Communicator 4.76
IE 5.5 ... etc.

Under Win2000, I took a peek at memory usage. Very interesting:

1. K-Meleon -- 15,600 KB's
2. IE 5.5 -- 14,452 KB's
3. Netscape -- 11,060 KB's

So much for small, fast browser. Nips!

My apologies. I was running Window Blinds when I peeked at memory usage. This program 'skins' Windows, and adds overhead. I will post clean boot memory usage when I get a chance, but for now without Window Blinds :

K-Meleon -- 12,900 KB's memory usage.

Netscape & IE stayed almost the same with WB unloaded. IE did go up to 15,000 KB's, but I see Themebar running (another utility).

It's the details that'll get'cha.
