In Reply to bucksboy: As far as I understood the problem to be solved is to make screen resizing quick, that is not keep you waiting for the redraw when you change the size of the window. Opting for 800x600 as fixed size is absolutely no way to go - that was a standard resolution years ago and I don't think it is a good idea to go back there (despite lots of RISC OS users still using hardware of that age). I must admit that I really enjoy reading websites at 1600x1200 and thus with much more info visible at a time. Working with 1024x768 on my daughters computer tends to feel strange since the max window size is to small compared to what I'm used to. And more and more websites by now expect 1024x768 as a minimum screen resolution (though more and more now are being optimised for much smaller size as well to allow them to be viewed with a cell phone). Anyhow, as I stated, the resolution as such is as far as I understood not the problem but changing the window size in flight is.
