I got a warning from NetSurf - Boxconvert
What is "boxconvert"?

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
I have been using NS 3.0 for the most part, but having tried with 3.1 and
now the latest available 3.3 (Dev CI #2070), the problem seems to persist:
Using VARPC, memory is limited - the most I can use is around 102Mb. and
running Netsurf initially knocks that back to c. 94Mb with a Google default
page. If I now click on e.g. the Youtube link it drops to c. 81mb. Fair
enough, but if I now re-load the same page the available memory drops
around 9Mb each time until it reaches about 62Mb - on one occasion it
droped to 39Mb but this seems to vary. This means that I have to keep a
wary eye on memory available to avoid VARPC crashing if I start using
Quitting from Netsurf releases the used memory, but is there any other way
of preventing this?
P.S. Having just tried the above procedure using the latest download
(#2070), it seems to be even worse: available memory dropped to 30Mb.

Have just uploaded a .ZIP file and needed to test I have the right URL
to give out to people so I tried pointing to it with Netsurf (typing
in the full URL) but it's complaining "Unacceptable Type".
This doesn't seem to happen with other browsers/platforms (where said
Zipfile downloads OK).
Have looked for documentation on this error but to no avail.
Is it something I am doing wrong with Netsurf ?
