Is this report of traffic generation based on data (bytes) fetched, or
based on how many url's are fetched?

Reason I ask, is that since MSIE is capable of ActiveX controls, and
Netscape isn't, could it be the extra ActiveX controls (some can be HUGE)
being transferred that could be part of your traffic?

You might want to see if you can disable ActiveX in MSIE and see how far
that gets you....
