Rock solid on this Ubuntu Linux machine. May not have noticed the improvement quite so easily if I'd had to reboot. But on closing and re opening browser after the upgrade the improvement in rendering was quite spectacular.

Maybe its just a Linux thing or maybe it's now making use of multi-threading better. Doing some tests with a laptop last year I found that Ubuntu was something approaching 20% faster on file downloads that Windows XP, using the same hardware and same download sources. So it looks like the Windows TCP/IP stack isn't what it could be.

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
