I don't know what's with IE sucking badly on OS X Panther 10.3.1, but IE 5.1.7 under OS 9 is like 4 times faster than on OS X and performes better than Safari most of the time. Is this because OS 9 performs better than OS X or because the OS 9 version of IE kicks the OS X's version's butt and was properly optimized?

Better that Safari?? not sure about others, but Safari is one of the fastest browsers that I have come across...

This is more than likely due to the fact that IE for OS X is just a (somewhat poorly) carbonised version of IE for OS 9, and not optimised very much except to take advantage of things like Quartz Text Smoothing.
