I realise that this is a non-issue for graphics card users as their browser shouldn't touch the Chipram, but for Chipram-only users, I do think something needs to be changed so that their browser can open reliably. Personally, I find the time taken to load a WHDLoad slave is very short, even on a standard Amiga, so reloading I don't see as a problem personally. Maybe the action could vary depending on the free Chipram available? Also, if people don't want to update then they ought to disable the updates in their whdload.prefs file.
