Strangely, though, it continues to work just fine with Browse, Fresco,
Oregano and Oregano 2!  That's 'just fine' in that Google search works as
expected - and very quickly in Browse, Oregano and Fresco - and not 'just
fine' in the appearance of the fetched pages.

Given that three of the above browsers make no attempt at any form of JS it
puzzles me why it is that NetSurf (v3.2 no JS) just goes into a loop when
Google is invoked.
