Thanks for testing it!

Yeah, do not worry about that.

Surf doesn't handle rendering, that's the work of webkit.

It is very likely indeed. There's a whole tree of dependencies behind Webkit
using gtk3, I can't really tell you what's wrong with your setup on which I
have no information.
Maybe there's something wrong also with the video drivers, activating or
deactivating use of acceleration in rendering could help.

Good luck with your hybrid Debian stable/testing!
