The NetSurf download is always called 'netsurf.zip'.
Would it be possible to change this to give the version?
I save mine in a NetSurf folder and rename it with the date from the Info
Perhaps a compromise might be to call the versions according to the pattern
'NSxxyyzz.zip' where xx/yy/zz is the date from the Info box.
It'd save me a few clicks and taps!

Apologies, it seems that Yahoo is, once again, changing my postings to
multipart. I shall have to take it up with them.

I suggest that in the first instance you submit the bug report without
sending the log file. The developers may well be able to repeat the
crash for themselves. If not you can upload the log later.

Just used Netsurf to renew my car tax online.
Everything went very smoothly with only two minor problems.
1. On one page some of the coding was visible
2. I was going to leave feedback praising them for the use of
'plain English' and the fact that there were no problems with a
RISCOS browser, but on clicking submit I got an error message :-(
(but can't remember now what the exact message was!)
NOTE: No trees were killed in the sending of this message,
but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
1. I am liking Netsurf a lot, so thankyou :-)
2. Text input (forms) and writable icons
Do others here experience the following, or is it to do with my
combination of RO4.39, Iclear and NoPaste modules:
Is it possible to cut text in writable icons, or double-click to highlight
the text (as you can in other apps with Iclear module loaded)?
When inputing text into a form I can highlight text in that form, but I
can't Cut it.
...so I hold down the delete key and fill up the keyboard buffer so too
much text is deleted!
Is it worthwhile to suggest that auto-repeat in the keyboard buffer to be
turned off for this reason?

egg.com now seems to work with NetSurf. You can log in, and while it
continue takes you to the desired page.
to check my account, which sat there fetcing 3,7,2,9,1 objects while locking
the machine up entirely (some people will recognise that one), so thats
oneless time I'll have attempt to to use it.

As of yesterday, the formatting of www.bbc.co.uk has gone from
slightly bad (reported earlier) to atrocious (this is with the 06 Feb
2007 22:00 build, but I've tried it with an earlier build with the
same results, so the problem seems to be at the BBC end).
I've submitted a complaint, but I'm sure that the reply will be along
the lines of "Go forth and multiply, and use IE". I'm sorry that I
don't have the knowledge to test this page in the way that has been
suggested, but is there anyone out there who might be able to?
I have the feeling that we're stuck with this one :-(

The author of this site is redesigning it and has asked for feedback.
I'd like to be able to pass on any advice I get here.
My NetSurf 11 Feb 07 displays a yellow-text-on-black banner over some
of the text at the top of the page, and I wonder could someone please
diagnose the problem. If it's an authoring error I'd like to pass it
on to the author.
FWIW FireFox2 Xmas 06 doesn't show that offending banner at all, but
displays text bground as grey not black further down the page.
