Sorry, I was lazy. Here are the relevant sections:

Unfortunately we do not generally discuss future products or product
features in the public, sorry. The exception being components developed

So there!

Having real issues with Opera crashing (just closes itself)
particularly with Flash movies - which makes it a nightmare to
develop serious web apps for it (doesn't support everything we need
for good AJAX either!).

Not quite sure how to diagnose what causes the problem it seems
random, even occurs on trivial web pages.

Do others have closing/crashing browser issues too?

It amazes me a web tablet can be released with such a dated buggy
(proprietary) web browser, a dated flash player and no admitted plans
to offer upgrades to either (as far as I can make out the browser and
flash player are still the same from IT2005).

Which means the Nokia 770 is really no more than a toy and can't be
used seriously by businesses wanting a cheap mobile tablet to access
their corporate web applications (a rapidly expanding market,
demonstrated by things like the blackberry).

Which just underlines the need for Gnash.

Thanks for that I will give it a go, although I don't hold out much
hope of it being good enough for what I am doing.

The gnash plugin runs as a separate process, so it should not take the
browser out if it dies.
