Indeed. Funny you mention it, it just updated here too.
It worked fine on Windows as well :)))

Hm, AFAIK 1.5 should cache rendered pages when you go
back. In fact, it is the first version of any brower
on Linux that I can confortably use to read LKML archives,
all others would take way too long to render it every
time I went back to the index. (Sadly, IE was always much
faster at this particular task).
