+      If a link checker run in "summary only" mode takes a long time, some
+      user agents may stop loading the results page due to a timeout.  We
+      have placed workarounds hoping to avoid this in the code, but have not
+      yet found one that would work reliably for all browsers.  If you
+      experience these timeouts, try avoiding "summary only" mode, or try
+      using the link checker with another browser.
