Any chance of an updated deb package being hosted on the Netsurf website? The Debian repos are all still hosting 1.2, and I'm unable to fit all the build tools to compile from source onto my netbook's very cramped SSD storage.

Not really, no, as the relevant NetSurf developers who would be building such a .deb for us to host are also Debian developers and can just as easily upload the .deb to Debian's repository. They're rather snowed under with work right now, however.

www.ebay.de still does not look good - by far too much white space on the page so that only in 10% scaling it fits on screen; NetSurf 1.x was good on this page.
