Tell you what. When you are in Linux, do this:

mkdir ~/test && cd ~/test
for f in `seq 1 1000`; do touch ${f}.html; done

Notice that `ls` takes no time at all (At least under Linux w/ ext2)

Then start up your browser (Netscape 4.77 or Mozilla 0.9.9 in my case).
Type "file:///home/you/test" in location, time!

----------My results------------------
Mozilla - 9 seconds & 13 seconds
Netscape - 3 seconds & 3 seconds

(I repeated the whole experiment twice for each browser, starting them before 
and shutting them down after the experiment)

HW: K6-2 550 w/ 256 MB (Java disabled in Netscape. Don't know about Mozilla - 
whichever way it comes on Woody)

BTW, starting Mozilla also takes a while : 21 seconds

One could argue that the real test for browsers is rendering remote web sites 
with some text and some graphics in them, but as I mentioned, it's also been 
my (this time subjective) experience that Mozilla is several times slower.
