Same here, but not that long times, although on an old 90MHz Pentium.
That migt be because I also have a local proxy and 56K modem on the same
And I too use Opera.  Opera works much faster than Netscape but there is
certainly something wrong with the Mchip wep pages, as Opera displays the
objects horizontal position slightly wrong.  I have not seen that on any
other web page.  That might be the reason Netscape redraws.
Opera redraws some, some not.

Neither Netscape nor Opera have had any problems on any other page I have
visited, so why Microchip?

I have mailed my opinion earlier to webmaster.

I have tested some pages with different HTML validators, and some say there
is no error, other say there is a lot of inconcistencies.  As teese pages
don«t work flawlessly with neither Netscape nor Opera, i believe theese
pages might be designed using a Micro$oft product   <G>

I deleted MS Internet Exploder long time ago.  It always crashed in a while.
Anyone tested theese pages with MSIE?
