Commenting out bits of the !Run file using | is pretty much
to end in tears. Please don't do this.
OK, I won't, in future. It was a kind of one off thing.
Additionally, disabling logging totally defeats the point of us
for log files when you report a bug.
I realised that, thanks, but wanted to see if logging had any significant
effect on file loading and rendering. Equally, if it had worked logging
could also be turned back on again in extremis.

It would be; logging simply isn't a significant proportion of
NetSurf spends the vast majority of its time doing the things you'd
expect (namely, fetching and rendering web pages).
Yes, I now realise!

I'm not sure you've told us what your machine is or what led
believe that turning off logging would help.
An A7000+. I didn't believe anything at all really, I just wanted to know.
A bit like mt Everest I suppose, because it was there!
Um, I am unlikely to replace my machine until hell freezes over and I just
wondered if it could be provoked into making NetSurf a smidgion faster.
