I tried the new release of links. It's ok and the speed seems good: I am not able to calculate it exactly because I use a wireless connection (through tp-link tl-MR3020) and therefore depends on the signal strength of the place. However, it takes the line immediately. thanks,andrea:ok:

I mentioned that it seems faster than the previous Links 2.9,

Mikulas replied:
"It is faster because it uses keepalive on HTTPS connections."

So far it has performed without any problems at all.
Even accepts my additions for RSS and Youtube without a hitch.
