It really has a lot of problems with scripts which run wild and
block the entire thing. I see a lot of these "ew something"
pages, completely new experience. The good thing is that if you
manage to get the tab closed, ... you can start anew!
And typing in the address bar is sloooow here now (sheer power may
overcome that).
Other than that it is my browser, and i am still using -r1.
