What's the best browser I can run on the SimPad?

The latest I could get a good while ago was Opera 7.5.5, which seemed to have leaked from the Zaurus. However, it crashes often and has its own style of presentation, to put it mild.

I need Javascript (more specifically a XMLHTTP request to do some AJAX). The old Opera has Javascript, but not such features.

Hi,
I have no answer for your question. But can you please give us a description about how you got the opera working? This is a often asked question without replys!
regards

Too bad nobody can point to a more modern browser. :-(
Where is firefox, seamonkey, etc.?

The Opera installation was done by a friend, credits to him.
I have to run the "rotten old" Open Simpad v0.8.1, for library compatibility, he said. Besides that, according to the notes I made, here are the steps to perform, after obtaining the package and somehow copying it to the simpad:
CODE
ipkg install opera_7.55.6079_arm.ipk

mv /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf /etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf.orig

cd /root
rm .opera
rm .operasave

ln -s /opt/QtPalmtop/opera/.opera .opera
ln -s /opt/QtPalmtop/opera/.operasave .operasave

cd /usr/share
rm opera
ln -s /opt/QtPalmtop/opera/ opera
ln -s /opt/QtPalmtop/opera/buttons operabuttons

cp opera.ini /root/.opera

For me, I switched to 7.55 and found it unstable on Cacko1.23/c1000. I end up reverting to O7.25. So far so good.

No flash ... but hey, I'm content as it is. smile.gif
