    Nintendo really has no reason to add flash to the system YET; Netflix and Nintendo Video are kind of the replacements for online video viewing. Sorry!

    Not yet. There is no way to play videos on the 3DS besides the ones on Netflix or Nintendo Video.

    Not gonna happen. Nintendo isn't too big on technology other companies own, else they'd have included Flash support natively. this is good for them in the sense that they'll have less to troubleshoot/support (no flash means no 3DS owners calling in because they can't get flash to work on this site or some other).

    It could simply be the fact that nintendo's custom ARM processor isn't even compatible with flash... at the very least it would take working with adobe for them to release a version for their 3DS OS.... so it may come, but I wouldn't hold my breath. More likely (but still unlikely) would be simply getting a native Youtube "app"... not sure what nintendo's stance would be on that if Google was interested...

    Most likely, the only way we'll get Flash, is for the 3DS to get hacked and have a homebrew application.

    I don't understand why people are acting like the Nintendo DS is a fucking iPad, it probably doesn't have the hardware to properly handle Flash and even if it did do you really want to stream videos wirelessly on a 3.25" screen without a proper sound card or proper speakers? Unless you plug headphones in, but still, what the fuck is the point?

    When in doubt, try starting with "m." (for mobile). For facebook, that would be "m.facebook.com". It will only work if the websites were made to use it, and may still require certain capabilities, so don't expect "m.youtube.com" to work.

    ...well, streaming 3D video content is one good reason i can think of, but i've no idea how prevalent 3D streaming content are today, but eventually youtube and other streaming sites will support it, if they haven't already.

    YouTube already supports 3D, but for nvidia 3D vision it uses html5 and not flash (no idea about their other 3D formats though, I've only used nvidia 3D)

    I've barely used the Internet browser on my 3DS, I always assumed that other than maybe for a game guide it would be useless? Especially since so many people have netbooks, tablets, smartphones etc to use instead.

    btw, i haven't tried it, but does the 3DS browser support the opening of .TXT files, like online FAQs and whatnots? I haven't tried it using it for that yet.

    Text files work fine, but GameFAQs converts text files to HTML anyways.
