    There's a lot of people asking questions if *insert website here* works with the Goldleaf Browser/Nintendo Browser. I'm here to compile all the data that I've gathered (and maybe some from this thread and others) to tell you which websites do work and which ones don't.

    Netflix - Partially Works (can log on and get to menus but trying to play a video redirects you to a "system requirements" page. This probably won't be fixed until a new browser is made from scratch for the Switch).


    YouTube - Works (can do anything but load advertisements and play videos. However the YouTube app is available for switch so it makes this basically obsolete). EDIT: Apparently you can get videos to work by instantly putting it onto fullscreen and tapping it several times. But my point still stands of this pratically being useless.

    Reddit - Works (forum posts load fine and so do pictures. However, gifs have an inconsistency of working/not working (in my experience) however that is few and far between and most subreddits don't use gifs very often so I'll put it down as "works".

    GBATemp - Works (the website is pratically perfect on the switch. Forum posts load perfectly, pictures load perfectly the only minor thing that doesn't load is the GBAtemp livestream feed that plays in the background. But that's very minor).

    PornHub - Works (just gonna take XorTroll's word for it lol).

    Discord - Does not work (I'm able to login but after that it's stuck on a connecting loop before telling you to reload the page. Which then redirects you to the web app crashing and a prompt to reload the page. This goes on forever!)

    WILL BE UPDATING THE LIST ONCE I GET MORE INFO ON MORE WEBSITES.

    Netflix is pretty unlikely because it requires closed-source libraries to play the videos. Best hope is an official app, second-best hope is someone reversing those libraries eventually. Don't hold your breath.

    I tested Google Maps: it works but after less than a minute of usage (map zoom/pan), I get a "memory error" then the page is reloaded.
    My tests were done with "eBrowserMod" which redirects the eShop (so it's Nintendo browser too) in case of "voluntary DNS issues': https://github.com/Migushthe2nd/eBrowserMod

    Yes I used the official site . When selecting a video instantly bring it into full screen then click the center of the screen a couple times, like play pause takes about 5 or 6 clicks usually . Let me know if this helped you get it. Hopefully there will be a better way in the near future :)

    I can also confirm Reddit works (mostly). Forum posts load ok and so do pictures but there's an inconsistency of some GIFS working and some not. I'll still put it down as fully working as that's the core website usable and that's good in my books.

    Can also confirm Twitter works. However, it uses the old mobile UI. Videos don't load as well. Debating if it should be partially working or just working.

    Ok. What I do hope one day is someone can rework the web applet to a proper web browser for the switch. Because it would make sites like YouTube and Reddit perfect and get netflix to load a video. I believe the problem may be half baked HTML5 support.

    20190127_122020. Not too bad for something that's just a web applet. For comparison my daily driver (Samsung S8) got a 527.

    I'm not too suprised about that. Since Netflix didn't work beyond menus. I'll add it to the list. Can you login and view the menus?
