Excellent news! I built Netsurf on Ubuntu on my Eee PC the other day, and it was very easy following the instructions (I only omitted libharu cos I couldn't drive the build scripts). It's so much faster than Gecko-based browsers (e.g. Firefox) - and also doesn't suffer from random slow-down. Just nicer to use.
Now I've just got to figure out why keyboard navigation doesn't work.
