    I've been wanting an internet browser for my DS for a long time, but I don't have a GBA Port RAM pack... I've tried DS Organize's internet browser, but it didn't do any cookie related things. Bunjalloo is good, but it is either slower than the official Nintendo DS Browser, it can't load half the pages I try to access (that do work and half of them have only text), it freezes up, or it says it can do the cookies but something isn't allowing it. And Okiwi is horrible.

    I'm looking for some sort of internet browser, and I can't use any that require a program on the computer or an slot 2 RAM pack... What are my choices if considering that and the information i've included above?

    If not that question, then what's the best DS Browser/Official NDS Browser hack to use?

    Bunjallo

    I think that's about it

    Okiwi was an alpha and AFAIK it was abandoned long time ago

    Yup, as Viteh says, Bunjallo is as good as it gets.


    (unless you want to do some serious hacking then give DSLinux a try)

    Yeah I didn't really like Bunjalloo. It couldn't load half the stuff I tried to make it load, and most of it was just pages with text... And then like sometimes it'd freeze my DS.

    Bunjallo is kinda like a cellphone browser

    you can log on to mobile sites like

    Code:
    m.facebook.com
    and similar

    maybe one day it'll be able to do more

    You could possibly try DS2Win? (I've never actually used it myself, but supposedly it should be able to do most of the things that you can do on the computer since its just sending the ds images of the screen I think it was...) But then again, I think you also would need a computer that is on and stuff.

    When did you last try Bunjalloo? I ask because the creator of Bunjalloo has improved the program incredibly over the last few months.

    Last time I tried Bunjalloo was the other day.

    I'm trying DSHobro, but i've noticed I can't figure out how to log into websites that require a username and password. XD

    There's a special way to do text input in DSHobro, but I forgot exactly how. Try looking for the DSHobro documentation, which should tell you how.

    Wait I though you need a Slot 2 expansion pack for DSlinux.

    The OP just wanted to discuss internet browsers that run without a slot-2 cart, thus why jakob was confused

    DS linux is quite ok.
    You can get the same apps seperately.
    The only thing in this is everything is there together.

    To input text into DSHobro, tap on the text box and press 'select'. The toolbar will popup and you should select the 'text' icon.

    Yeah DSHobro is quite good. But most homebrew internet browsers don't show pictures [​IMG]
