Honestly, what else do you do with your SIMpad except surfing the net?

The problem is, we never had a really good webbrowser on the SIMpad. Not with WinCE, not with familiar GPE and OPIE, and now not really with Angstrom as well.

The only "nearly" usable browser is Minimo, and that's what I am using for a while now since familiar. Minimo never was really stable, it's crashing X11 due to a memory leak, if a webpage contains too many or too large images. Strangely, Minimo seemed to work better on familiar, than on Angstrom, although it's quite faster with Angstrom now.

I know, that there is not enough memory on a SIMpad, but would it be somehow possible to get Firefox into a standard size Angstrom SIMpad Image, and to run it with the standard size of RAM?

Any other alternative approach, like Angstrom with OPIE and a recent Konqueror Embedded version?

Anything to come has to be better than GPE + Mimimo, and my dream would be, to be able to use my SIMpad purely for surfing the net incl. Flash support...

Well, VNC alone isn't really a good thing to do (unencrypted), so you kind of want/need SSH in there.

If your server has a static IP or a way to easily find the IP, you could just make a script that you could launch to connect to the server.

If you just want to use Firefox through SSH, you don't need a whole VNC session, just X forwarding through SSH.

Hope that helps.
