Last Sunday I was trying out the latest version (2.6) of NetSurf and it crashed the same way it did with the previous version. With almost all sites it comes up right away with a SSL certificate window followed by the Grim Reaper. I really wanted to get this to work so I contacted Chris Young from Unsatisfactory Software to see if he had any ideas what might be causing this. After a few mails (crash log info) he provided me with the development version 3.0 which worked without crashing like before. He released this version yesterday for everyone to try out.
Great work Chris! There is always a lot of bitching and moaning on forums but as you can see good things do happen. It surely made my Sunday. Cheers Cris.
