I can't confirm that, most web page (at least those which not bloated are)
loads instantly, surf seems to be as fast as lynx here.

With tip, here, downloads are completed, but after that, surf stays blocked
on a white page with only the download file name on it. I didn't
found a way to go back, i have to close the window.

Copy works perfectly either with ctrl-y and right-clic "copy uri",
for pasting in vim, all i need to do is being in insert-mode
and shift-insert.

The only problem i face except the download blocking page issue
is that i'm unable to paste with shift-insert in forms,
i have to middle-clic.
