Add a note about how to get the best speed out of the OS4 version. Mostly this is to
encourage people to use 32-bit screenmodes :) svn path=/trunk/netsurf/; revision=8333

+There are a number of options which can be changed that will affect the speed of NetSurf's rendering. Here are a list of the fastest settings which may help decrease rendering time on slower platforms:
+@{lindent 2}* Ensure NetSurf is running on a @{b}32-bit screen@{ub} if possible. NetSurf down-converts from 32-bit ARGB for display, which can impact performance.@{lindent}
+@{lindent 2}* In preferences, General tab, enable @{b}Fast scrolling@{ub}.@{lindent}
+@{lindent 2}* In preferences, Rendering tab set:
+@{b}Cache native versions@{ub} to @{b}Scaled@{ub} (or preferably @{b}All@{ub}, but this will use more graphics mem, and scaling images is a bigger performance hit)
+@{b}Deselect @{b}Higher quality scaling@{ub}, this will be very slow if not done in hardware.@{lindent}
