    There are some ways.

    1: Opera browser, official "game", youll have to go to the store and buy it

    Following are homebrews:

    2: http://code.google.com/p/quirkysoft/ , bunjallo is a homebrew browser, only displays text, but its pretty neat

    3: DSOrganize has an web-browser, supports small images - http://www.dragonminded.com/?loc=ndsdev/DSOrganize

    4: DSHobro , DS Sends request "google.de" to the PC -> PC gets the page & renders it -> not the DS is getting the data from your PC
    It has full image quality, but you have to run a "server" application on your PC

    Bunjalloo is the best imo, well the one with the least crashing. It lets you add bookmarks. It is text only when you load a web page but the images are links so you can click them to see the image from the web page.

    I agree with Hardcore Gamer. It loads fast, isn't all jumbled up like DSO (Well, IMO it's jumbled), has easy bookmarking, downloading, images (You can save them, too), and is overall better.

    If you want to read manga, you'll probably have to download ones(.cbds) for comicbook ds, or download all the images and make a .cbds yourself. The web/homebrew browsers are not good enough to be reading manga/viewing images. Hobro might be able to but you have to have the app on your computer which doesn't really let you do it on the go with a wifi point.

    I too like bunjaloo. Much rather have speed + text only then slow images.

    I am pretty sure he means to read manga online(onemanga) and the answer would be most likely no because if you did find one that loaded that big of pictures they would be horrible quality and you wouldn't be able to read them.

    If you can, I recommend Trying out DShobro, which is pretty fast, due to the Fact You have to use a server, but that also means that you can onlyt really use it at your house and not when you're out somplace with your DS, however it does occasionally crash, so Bunjalloo is probably better.

    despite what people say OPERA ds is pretty good!

    sure it has no sound or java but other browsers dont either!

    yes you need a slot 1 card and a slot 2 card if your running it from a backup but a lot of us out there have ez 3 in 1 cards and this can be used and the gba expansion with the m3 real can also be used ....

    .... overall I think its a really good browser and even if you buy it its still not a bad price [​IMG]

    and if you use EBUDDY website you can connect to MSN/YAHOO/AIM/GTALK and now even MYSPACE chat clients and connect to them all at once or a couple of them at a time [​IMG]

    It also handles pages with images pretty good too and a swap to OVERVIEW mode you can quickly roll about the webpage using your stylus whilst viewing on the top screen [​IMG]
