Comment (by bbjimmy):

 Using hrevr1alpha4-4458 on a faster connection, WebPositive is now worse
 than before. It hogs the cpu and locks up the app server while dificult
 pages are loading, and one cannot scroll on preveously loaded pages until
 all page loads are complete. This is more of a threading and priority
 problem than a webkit problem. If I lower the priority of Webpositive's
 main thread to normal, it plays well with other apps and no longer locks
 up the system. If I change WebPositve to allow multiple launch and launch
 all new pages in a new browser, I can use the loaded pages while other
 ones ( instances of WebPositive ) are loading pages.
