    In your heap, shifting bits.
    The free Internet browser can show 3D images on sites that are specifically designed to show 3D images.

    As many of you will already know, the browser will also be available to use as you play meaning you'll be able to check out game guides if you are stuck in a game.

    You can stop playing your Nintendo 3DS game and go to the browser by pressing the Home button and then resume their game when you're finished browsing.

    You can also use the browser to download 3D pictures from the Internet and save them to your SD Card. Or you can upload ones you have taken with the Nintendo 3DS cameras.

    When you're using the internet browser, you'll be able to zoom in on JPEG images by tapping and holding.

    Earlier today Nintendo Japan confirmed some more information about the 3DS browser. We learned that the 3DS internet Browser will not support plug ins like Flash or PDF.

    However, you'll be able to store up to 64 favourites.

    As for images, the browser can directly display 3D picture data in the MPO format. Compatible image formats include MPG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP and ICO.

    The browser will also have parental controls and parents will be able to limit internet use through the 3DS system settings.

    To access to 3DS eStore you'll need to perform the recommended system update. Nintendo 3DS users can simply start the "System Settings" from the Home Menu, select "Other Settings" and scroll the page right to select "System Update."

    I'm still pretty excited about the canvas element being supported.

    I can live without it. I'll only need the browser for walkthroughs anyway. [​IMG]

    No mention of the video player yet. I'm VERY scared. Nintendo is so antiquated when it comes to these things.

    So the video confirms that Excitebike will have the retro graphics......SWEET~ [​IMG]


    AND WHY care about Flash?? There are Laptops, Macs etc for a reason you know...

    Flash is never a selling point for a hand-held.

    It's handy if I wanna watch a quick video without having to boot those other devices. Obviously it isn't the selling point but it's quite nifty.

    Honestly, I'm more worried about the absence of some of the more prominent HTML5 features.
    Having a dedicated game handheld that could also work wonders with the web would have resulted with me carrying around one less device, but I'm not really complaining.

    No.
    You can just upload photos directly from SD card is all, no Nintendo facebook site, just your own blog sites can accept your images from the browser/3ds camera.

    Looking at the fact that the Internet browser will be used even when in the midst of a game, I sorta expected nothing

    @Nollog - You have a valid point about YouTube 3D but alas, who will feed all this into Nintendos brain??

    Youtube announcing stereoscopic 3D had me pretty excited. I still think a dedicated youtube app may be released; a woefully missed opportunity if not.

    Anyone willing to predict how well the HTML Canvas element will perform? Is anyone even looking forward to it?

    I think i read somewhere that for a system to support flash, the company has to pay through the nose to get the license from Adobe. So Nintendo would rather make their own apps to do stuff for free.
