No. It's very different, you can show N900 as computer
to webpages. Well made pages works fast, but some
poorly heavy made pages can be slow.
Good thing is that you
can use keyboard short-cut to copy from web-page.

If you want program with smartphone. Yes I recommend,
I think that is best for that.

I have N900 in every day use as my main phone. And I have
seen new iPhone and many Android devices, but they don't
have that freedom that N900 has.

Mmm, I don't seem to be able to do that in Fennec, or I'm missing something?

I just bought a used Nokia N900 and I am so much impressed what this good old device can. And how great the community keep this special phone alive!!! Thank you all so much...

Ok, browsing the web is not the same as on modern smartphones. Even if it is not as bad as something said here (qml-browser 0.9 was just updated half a year ago).. Furthermore some apps need a little bit manual work (e.g. ModRana or CuteTube2).

But for a linux enthusiast, there is nothing better at the moment I think. And at the moment many things arise: Maemo Leste, Postmarket OS, perhaps sometimes Neo900..

On the other hand this or next year Purism Librem 5 will come. And I think this smartphone will be a game changer for the Linux mobile world...

I just open Fennec (version 7) and going to m.youtube.com and I click under the pictures watch video when Fennec starts mediaplayer and show the video in full screen. Just easy.
