    I am curious, i noticed the web browsers in the NEW 3ds are different than the old ones, Has anyone tried to swap them to see if it will still work? To be honest i would try myself but i dunno how to even get the browser to a install format. So that is why i am asking.

    Thats actually a pretty good question...having html5 on o3ds is the best thing it could happen

    In theory the old one should work on the new, but the new should not work on the old.

    The New browser uses the N3DS's extra power, it shouldn't be functional with o3ds afaik.

    @Snowdori is saying that because it uses the extra CPU power and APIs that don't exist on the old 3DS, it won't run. It's the equivalent of trying to run GTA V on a pentium from 10 years ago.

    I understand that, that still doesn't mean my question is answered, cause i still do not know if someone has tried this. If it hasn't been tried before, is simple to just say no or ignore reponding to it. I appreciate the explanations and reasons why it would not work, but unless someone says "I tried to do it but the browser didn't load" Or "I tried this, it still works but some functions don't work properly" I still do not have my answer.:unsure:

    I might play it on a 25th anniversary 500 MHz pentium in ten years or so, but probably not.

    Yeah it sounds good, but i just like how the new one looks over the old one, i figured they would have made the browsers look identical, but maybe is not possible.

    Thank you sir :)
    Do you know how to exract it from the system? If i did, i would try it myself.

    Also another question, If i can get a web browser with the version used for exploit for the Browserhax, and install it on the system, could i use the QR code cheats again?

    Yeah that works, I did it before.
