I think the major advantage of 2.8.5 is https support. That isn't needed
for what you are doing, but is a good reason for someone to use it
as their browser in preference to earlier versions. I am using
2.8.5dev.9 and it seems to work reasonably well. The new scroll bar
function has an issue (copying text accross the scroll bar doesn't
work) so I don't use that feature.
