When downloading files in Camino v0.8.4, the "Save Target As" download time on
ffiles the size of approxx. 10mb is relativly slow compared to Firefox. Since
Firefox and Camino are vuilt on the same basic engine, shouldn't the speed be
the same? I suggest that A good idea would be to take a few components straight
out of  the OSX realease of Firefox. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on a file
2. download it to the hard drive. (internet connection speed is not a big
factor, since the download time is relative to another web browser.)
3. measure the time it takes to download the file on Camino vs. Firefox

Actual Results:  
See above in the detaails area

Expected Results:  
The software should have been able to match firefox in speed. Of course, beating
it would be nice, but that isn't very inportant. Just a download speed that can
meet Firefox, and meet or beat Apple's Safari 2.0 .  

I'm using Apple's newest OS, 10.4 "Tiger", so Camino might not have been
performing at best capacity. Another thing; It would be ideal to have full
support for Tiger by 0.9.x, and complete compatibility/funtionality for OS 10.4
by Camino v1.0, 0r v1.x .
