    I tried DSOrganize, latest version, but it always crashes very fast, especially when there's a few pictures on the site.

    Bunjaloo... tried it too. Browsing the pages is very slow, it seems to crash after 15 or so minutes, and it seems to just flat-out ignore a lot of links when you try to visit them.

    Also tried something like DSHobro. It seems I need to start up a certain program on my PC every time I want to use it. It's by far the slowest of the bunch, although it displays web-pages really well and every link can be followed. Still, the speed is just tedious compared to the others.

    Any other suggestions for programs, or how to make these work better? My DS is just a fat launch DS, imported it from the US.

    Only other real option would be Okiwi, which really isn't worth considering at all. There's also DSLinux, but whether there would be enough free RAM to start wifi and launch Retawq is questionable. Bunjalloo is probably your best bet.

    Also note that with DSHobro, a good amount of the slowdown is actually probably caused by your CPU speed. When the icon on the screen is a solid color, it's busy taking screenshots of the webpage on the computer and splitting it into DS-sized chunks, while when the icon is flashing, it's actually sending the data to the DS. I've tried DSHobro on both my 5-year old computer and the brand-new one, and the difference is definitely noticeable. Open up Task Manager and go to the Performance tab and watch that as you browse around with DSHobro to see what I mean.

    v3.2 is known to be somewhat buggy; try using v3.1129.

    if you have a ram expansion pack, try the opera ROM.
    but this doesnt let you download. in that case, stick with bunjalloo

    The Opera DS browser renders pages more accurately, but slower. Bunjalloo lets you download files. Personally I switch between using Opera and the browsers in DSLinux depending on what I plan to be browsing at the time.
