    I made my way onto Nintendo's website using the Switch's browser and tried to send them an email through it. Then this happened: WIN_20170306_155853.JPG

    Try and find other interesting stuff you can do with the Switch browser and share it here!

    Wanted to see if the blur tests works on the Switch's LCD and looks like it's OK for me, but "Generic Webkit" has no access to VSync aparently

    I've gotten into the browser a few times through the Nintendo page and Gmail but it's honestly not that great. I haven't really digged that deep but it tends to give an error most times you enter any page outside of google.

    I still hope Nintendo releases a proper browser for the Switch.
    To be honest that is all I am waiting for right now to get one.
    I know that if a proper browser gets released == Webkit exploit is ensured.
    Heck plutoo is already documenting Switch stuff even without a proper browser. xD

    Yes, in my experience it just pops up a message that says "File selection is not supported".

    I managed to get the JSNES NES Emulator working (really slowly, but working). I made a thread about it some days ago, but I still need to record it working

    doubtful but do any good games that run in browsers work well in the switch browser?
