Tlsa:

Thanks for these comments - useful stuff.

Re the layout issue, I wonder if NetSurf could automatically re-flow things during a long download, say every 5-10 seconds. Like I suspect many people, I keep the NetSurf window in the same place most of the time, and manually re-sizing it just to update the display is a bit of a faff. In addition, to reiterate a point made in the article, I assume a disc cache would substantially alleviate this problem. I have no idea how tricky a job this is, though, nor whether it's high on the current list of priorities.
