I can confirm this, had a look at the test pages from my linux box
running an old J6 and then from a windows box updated to last J6 an it
does boost load time. Anyway applets still suffer from basic load time,
while a dhtml/ajax/javascript/whichnameyouprefer application can (but
not always do) display at least something while the .js files are still
loading. Good examples are many Google apps that display the complete
layout even if they are still loading in the background, giving the user
the feeling that everything loaded quickly, while it is still loading in
the background. I'm pretty sure this can be achieved with applets as well.

I had a look at many demos from both linux and windows, firefox + J6,
and they worked out perfectly.
