Issue #30.

Nimbus Look and Feel

The browser now uses a different look and feel called Nimbus. Earlier, gngr defaulted to the System Look and Feel, which didn't render menus very well. Issue #70.

Javascript stability

We fixed a long standing bug with the Javascript engine. It was a hard to reproduce, non-terminating loop that required ugly hacks to workaround. But with this release, we were able to find the root-cause and make a proper fix. The resulting code is cleaner and Javascript execution is a little faster. This will pave the way for many DOM API and other Javscript related improvements. Details in #29.

Layout improvements
