I use to use Avantgo on a Windows Pocket PC very regularly as it allowed me to read news papers etc while on the train. Now that I'm no longer using the pocket PC and instead have changed to an ultra portable laptop running Fedora 9, I'm looking for an application that has the same type of functionality as avantgo that will run on this machine.
Avantgo in a knutshell can be configured to grab updated content from a website which is then sincronized with your Pocket PC device for viewing in a browser. It can be configured to follow all the links on a page to the first second third ...... levels. It is perfect for a site such as the text based irish examiner where the majority of articles are linked to via the front page.
Idealy, I am hoping to find an application that will download this content and leave it on the disk somewhere so it can be browsed in firefox.
