    Okay, so I want a decent web browser for my NDSL and I'd really like to know which one is the best one there is.

    Suggestions?

    The fastest is the DSLinux web browser

    I think the fastest is actually DSHoBro, which uses an app on your PC to render the webpage before sending it to your DS.

    Beyond that, performance/quality degrades without having a slot-2 Memory pack due to the small amount of RAM in the DS.
    IF you can get DSLinux to work properly, one of the browsers (DSLinux isn't a webbrowser itself, and there is more than one -- 2 or 3 if I recall) is apparently one of the better ones... but that all depends on IF will run for you.
    I use a mix of Bunjalloo and DSorganize. It's been a while, but I think DSOrganize is better at rendering the page properly (as in 'as it should be') but has problems with images while Bunjalloo is/seems faster.

    I seem to have a better time browsing with Bunjalloo as well. DSO's browser has never worked for me for some strange reason.

    Bunjalloo does have it's drawbacks though, it's not like DSHoBro that gives out a much nicer view of the webpage. But then again it requires the slot-2 RAM.

    DSHoBro doesn't need slot-2 RAM.

    Official/Opera browser needs the slot-2 RAM, DSLinux will use it if available and I think Bunjaloo and DSOrganize can use it if available.
    DSHoBro uses a PC app to load the page and 'stream' a compressed version of it to the DS.

    I like using Bunjalloo since I can download pictures and it doesn't use a PC application.

    Sorry, meant to say you need the Slot-2 RAM for a smoother web-surfing experience.

    I barely use NDS browsers now (either my computer, my DSi or PSP) but when I do use my DS Lite I also like Bunjalloo for the same reason. I think it's the only one that allows you to save files while browsing.

    None are able to render Flash at all.
