Works very well here - problem with auto-completion in URL bar and non-sticky bookmarks resolved. Great!

Some good progress but it is not usable for all day due it goes into a loop like previous V4 build !

As soon I try to have some flash working (flash7), I have a VDM\Proxy Broser thread using between 60 and 80% of the CPUs.

tested on SMP (AMD 2core)

An easy test would be to go on my seb site and make the top flash banner run !

Now, I'm back on 3.6.16 which is ok.

I was looking some HTML5 videos on Youtube with it.
It seems to work very nice.

To enable HTML 5 in youtube visit.

Just so all of you know, I am running into temporary hanging issues with FF4 GA on Windows XP. Largely on pages that either contain complex Javascript or contain flash/Javascript movies and players.

By "temporary hanging issues" I mean the browser becomes entirely unresponsive for a decent amount of time (in one occassion, I actually ended up killing it via Task Manager - in the rest, it was 10-40 seconds).

Thus, I suspect there are still a few issues that need to be worked out with the browser - various of which will undoubtedly affect the OS/2 version.

Best,
Rob
