Don't confuse the file format (which isn't that bad) with the reader (which is
"what can we do that is as difficult to learn as emacs, and designed to run
on a minimal termal).
I don't know when it was introduced, but my Konqueror installation just allows
me to type
into the Location bar (where you'd normally type http://www.google.com.au)
That allows a fairly usable browser capability, which is probably OK if you
don't need too much. If you need a lot, I'd recommend converting the TeXinfo
into PDF or postscript, and print it out and read on the bus.
