    I've already seen some negative impressions on the browser, but sincerely, I think it's pretty fine. Granted, it might be a bit slow, doesn't support YouTube and has to render incrementally, but major sites (Gmail, Facebook, Digg, GBAtemp...) seem to work. Zooming is smooth. Also, it does seem to support many HTML5/CSS3 features, AJAX and Canvas (I will post compatibility results soon).

    As far as impressions go, I'm pretty pleased. I'm just rather excited to play around with it.

    You need to Google these.
    Type it in to the address bar and it just says "Invalid Url"

    Reading the specifications from the manual Nintendo claim to be using code from both Apple and WebKit for their browser.

    looks like canvas is ignoring the alpha channel of an image. ohlawd.


    jsnes actually runs, but is completely unusable lol.

    I get many "Terminating script" messages, but when I don't, the emulator runs a ~0.2 FPS.

    I'm using the 3DS browser to type this...it's actually way faster than I thought it would be! I hope they make stuff like a youtube app...and the ability to view 3D images in the browser is pretty neat. What's this "canvas" thing you guys speak of?

    Part of html5, a new(ish) html/javascript standard that lets you do some of the same stuff that Flash lets you do but without plugins. Yes, that includes browser based games.

    They better include a standalone YouTube application.

    WebKit is mostly developed by Apple, so WebKit's code == Apple's code.
