The iBook's clamshell design is completely free of latches, doors, or flaps(not even a close latch), so there is nothing to jam, snap or break off. Equally brilliant was the addition of a flip-up carrying handle that's integrated right into the case design, so it's easy to pick the iBook up and tote it around.

Will my iBook run OS 8.6?

Mac OS 8.6 media
When the original iBook in Tangerine and Blueberry was presentesd by Steve Jobs on July 21 in 1999 it came with Mac OS 8.6. Only a couple of months later in October the new OS9 was released. According to Apple's product policy all new hardware turned out from that point need OS 9 as minimum OS.
Clamshell iBooks with 300mhz were produced until September, so it is likely that your Tangerine or Blueberry will refuse to boot OS 8.6.

Internet Browser for the Clamshell iBook

There are only a few Internet Browsers for outdated MacOS, which are subject to continuous develepment - such as Classilla and iCab for OS 9, iCab for OSX 10.3 and 10.4 plus TenFourFox for 10.4.
Camino and Opera are still useful with reservations.
iCab Browser is Shareware, but there are only reminders which pop up from time to time.
