From what I read Courier is great, but when I open a website and it's too large it will take up my heap and crash my Newt. So any options? I have WiFi and Email set up but I can't find a good Internet Browser

Are you using a MessagePad 2000 or 2000U/2100? I don't recall running
into many heap problems when using Courier on my MP2100 w/WiFi and
Courier, but it has been a while since I've used it for standard web
browsing. When browsing, you'll want to freeze most packages except
for those needed for Internet access & browsing.

Also, are there particular sites that you frequently run out of heap
when trying to load?

One avenue you might try is using PT100 to telnet to a free shell
service like <> and use Lynx via the shell so
that you're not limited by heap for loading pages.
