yea i have tried some of the console browsers out but i cant get on with
them very well, plus i need a graphical one so that i am able to see if
say a picture isnt working on one of the sites... then look at the
source and check why, so its mainly for a little bit of web editing.
Thats why i thought a small window manager might be needed, oh and i
guess i would need a browser for it as well... didnt think of that one :(
I will have a look at them URL's you sent, and check to see which is
most compatible with the bits i got.
oh also what is meant by the "production release" and the "new
technology release" is there alot of difference?, other than the obvious
