You know, I've noticed the same issues as well.  They seem to have popped  
up after upgrading to 14.0.835.163_1, if I remember correctly.  I mostly  
see the issue with artifacts and whatnot on sites with heavy AJAX.  The  
issue with the blank page (i.e., the site appears to have loaded but all  
that can be seen is a blank white page -- if I move the mouse around, it  
still hovers over links so it would seem the page actually loaded but just  
is not rendering properly).

Rather than post on the forums (or this list) about it, I just started  
using Opera.  Figured it might be something to do with my install (I run  
8.2-STABLE on a PC-BSD installation).  I tried rebuilding the port,  
downloading the pre-built package, etc...not sure what could be causing it.

Just wanted to chime in with "me too", heh.
