I wrote a fairly complex application using the Opera browser
(Javascript, JSON) for UI and a python web/application server installed
locally on a N770.  It works - in principle.

But: debugging is a nightmare, the browser hangs sometimes (especially
in the first 20 minutes after system boot) and the rendering is sluggish
with images.

Right now I'm rewriting the application with Python/GTK for N800, first
tests are very promising.

Bye, Andreas
