As of today the 'captcha' on the fanfiction.net log-in page is no longer
displaying - the only way I have found to log in now is to view the
page source and double-click on the hidden link to the audio file
Is this a layout issue or have they changed the log-in to be
JS-dependent? (I can't make it out from the page source.)

Thank's for your continues tests with the latest builds.
I will forward this discussion to the netsurf user list.
Some "lags" where always present, and I don't know what it is. It
every now and then - especially on some pages. So it is more or less
However. Because people complained, I have set the GUI priority to
"Low" again. That means
the Browser is less responsive, less time is spent on checking User
Interactions. That gives a bit more
time for rendering.
But the user can modify this setting now. Go into the Choices menu and
select some value for "GUI timeout" - that's the timeout value passed
to evnt_multi. Selest "10" and see if it makes the GUI more responsive,
as example: for clicking scroll button.
Btw. since libdom is used (2.9 used libxml) css matching got slower.
Maybe that's the speed issue
that was recognized a few days ago. Hower, libdom is used since several
month now.... So that's nothing new ;)
Also make sure to unzip the whole archive, many things where modified.
I installed the Atari build 1501 and subjectively it seems slower,
mostly after the page has been rendered, Netsurf pauses for over a
minute before the page can be scrolled or anything else.
I will have to do some timings to be certain.

I'm beginning to wonder if we're being served the same code. The screen
grab which I posted before, showed only the lower end of a long page. I
see, from your screen grab, that the blue header is immediately above
the log-in section, whereas on mine there are many lines, of what I took
to be incorrectly displayed js menus, between the blue header and the
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/77062274/fanfiction.zip contains a full-save of
the page, and a draw-file showing the entire display.
I'm sure there were some posts about viewing local disc-based websites
and the strange filename (a typical title will be prefixed with
(file:///ADFS%3A%3AHardDisc4.%24/) in NetSurf's title bar but I can't
Is there anyway of giving the title bar the proper file path location

With the Atari (non-JS) build No. 1447 I am seeing more or less the same
login display but without the headphone icon.
I am also seeing the long list of "menu" items down the middle of the page.

For you, #1447 doesn't show the captcha, but for me it does (see link).
I wonder what could explain the difference. Here #1447 runs on RO 5.20 /
RPCEmu 0.8.11 / Win7. Your headers suggest that you are using a Mac.
