None whatsoever.

I even did a quick test with three pages:
                 | CI#1995 | CI#1996   |   6.1s  |   6.0s    |   3.5s  |   3.4s |   4.8s  |   5.1s

Entirely non-scientific, but it doesn't seem any faster.  They are
both significantly quicker than the values in the screenshots on the
NetSurf site though. :)

I'm hoping it is stopping NetSurf taking processor time away from
other tasks.
