I installed Java 6 Update N b13 and I while I noticed an increased applet startup time we still can tell that it's an applet, it takes around 3-5 seconds on an AMD Athlon 64 3800x2 2Ghz 2GB of RAM under Windows XP, I tried that on IE7 as well as Firefox 3. We need faster speeds to be able to compete with flash. Applets should not slow down the rendering of webpages otherwise nobody will use them for consumer applications.

I thought I'd replied to this post but we are working on the overall startup time of the new plug-in under http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6668037 . We are also going to be working on overall startup time of applets in a forthcoming build of 6u10.
