Re: Netsurf

I did test this yesterday on the FireBee - it was freezing upon load, but will make sure it wasn't anything on my end today.

Are there specific features/areas to test?

FireBee in NYC

Just hooked this bad boy up in my NYC office! Great job team on how everything "just works" - especially the ability to just plug in an ethernet cable and be live on the internet. That's a huge improvement over the days of past.
