Friends of the Tree Friends of the Tree

Dave Townsend has been working hard in his spare time to port Fennec to the Palm Pre. He is going to Palm Developer Day on Saturday and has worked with some of the Palm guys to get it working. Also, Dolske created a version of Weave that will work with this version. It's mostly functional, with just a few kinks to be worked out in page zoom and gestures. Extra credit FTW.
