> The new combo browser/browserd is very unreliable. Things that happened to me so
> far:
> 1) Browser apparently hangs or closes due to an "internal error". Sometimes
> killing browserd is enough, sometimes you have to restart it and sometimes a
> reboot is the annoying only way out.
> 2) Sometimes when you "open a link in a new window" and quickly try to switch to
> the original window (this is necessary since there's no "open in background
> window" option), the link will be opened in the original window and the new
> window remains blank with the url pointing to the old location.
> 3) Sometimes it is futile to try to select a window in the taskbar since the
> browser will put in the foreground whatever window it choses (usually the one it
> has just loaded).
> None of this happened with chinook.

Please learn how to file bug reports correctly. Only file ONE report per issue, and please provide some sort of reproducible testcase.
