It's not only not my area of expertise, I'm probably even worse than average
when it comes to these matters...! :-/

Done. And I updated the description and made the description for curl-library
bigger than the other ones...

something that looked decent so I stayed with just polishing up the table...
Thanks a lot for your feedback on this!
