I just installed Fennec, and while it did hog resources on start-up,
it seemed fine after that. Except I couldn't enter any text to go to
sites other than Mozilla, because it wouldn't show me a menu (so I
could paste text) and wouldn't pop up the on-screen keyboard. I'll try
it again when I get where I can hook up a USB keyboard and see if that
will allow me to actually browse the Web, but it looks like it will be
useless on the N800 until they come out with the public version that
includes full functionality.
