sorry for the lateness of this. Desktop PSU kinda died and so I compiled this on my laptop which is fairly underpowered
I've only compiled the 64bit binary for now, I get my new power supply unit tomorrow so I can do a 32bit build then

Keep in mind, this is an unofficial compile. But at least it's a new binary for 52.3.0

One thing you could try is disabling _javascript_ entirely. When you go to the home page of icecat (pressing alt+home on my computer), you will see a checkbox "Disable _javascript_".

I do this on my machine (which is not Windows) and BBC News displays well. Some things (e.g. videos) will not be functional as they require non-free _javascript_ to run.

Hi Felix,

Thanks for your reply. I've successfully downloaded and installed
IceCat from that URL you kindly sent me. I realise that the Windows
versions will lag behind the Linux versions a little.

I'm a little concerned that I'm not going to be able to use IceCat
very much as it doesn't seem to work very well. The first website I
tried was the BBC News website - a trusted source that I use all the
time. It didn't display at all in the way I expected, showing giant
graphic icons instead of the normal size, failing to arrange the
sections of the screen in their normal places and not presenting the
page very well at all.

I appreciate that this may be because the BBC is coding it in a way
that demands non-free components to run but sadly if I can't use my
preferred websites with this browser, I'll be going back to one of the
others I use.
