That is what the stock browser (and copy/paste behaviour) of latest Jolla device let me do all the time ...

Still using mine (x2)

One is just used as a screen for my energy/environment monitors, but the other gets used daily for all sorts:

weechat
bitflu (bittorrent)
moc (music on console) either from local files or via mpd streamed from a Raspberry pi

I still use it for fb chat via Pidgin, but I have to do that via ssh x now, as it's not functional directly on the tablet

Still read the news on it as well sometimes.

It's also got a 128gb microsd in it, so it's handy as a portable storage device.

It makes a nice portable audio player. I don't care for headphones, and the N800 can be propped up on its kickstand playing me some background music around the house or yard.

Nothing magical, I have Pidgin with the latest facebook plugin install on a headless Pi server.

When I want to chat via facebook I login to the Pi using ssh -X and then view pidgin on the tablet.

Me
-I love mucking about with all the diff. wm's and alt os's...
-use it for car maps via bluetooth from my n900 ...
-love it for reading my books...screen real estate is perfect for reading..
-and yeah tossing in a few monster sized sd cards means a TON of books , film (which it is great for movies) and all my music...
-heroes 2 ...along with other games...is nice for the screen size.
-in all it is great to play with...learn on...muck about with...
whereas it feels a bit more serious when I pick up my n900's
I'm sure there is more I'm forgetting...
in which case I'll post it here..
ooohhh actually there is something I'm working on and when done (hopefully shortly....) I'll post it up.

I use it because of its SIP client even though the call quality is not as good as others. As a photo frame also. DialCentral is still working fine and its LED notification is reliable. Until recently I was using it to control an old nokia phone through gnokii to send and receive texts.I am thinking on carefully soldering a ribbon to the leads in the battery compartment so it can be used to control other devices through serial but then I am not sure how to get a connector out in a way that is not too cumbersome. I am still hoping that the firmware for the different components that are proprietary will be released one of these days to the community so the life of the device can be extended indefinitely.
