    I'm not sure if anyone has noticed this, or maybe it's just a given. I didn't think of it until a few weeks ago.

    But, with the web browser, you most likely will be able to open it without closing any open software. It makes sense, because everything else at the top can be opened at anytime, and if this is true that's awesome.

    Sorry if this is way old news or something, but I've never seen anyone mention it.

    Ok, cool.

    That's sweet. I hate getting stuck in a game, and having to go to a computer to look it up. This way you could just tab out, and use the browser. That's so awesome.

    Thanks for confirming this.

    That was one of the advertising points. Searching for guides without having to quit the game.

    I would if I had a 3DS. I still use my DSi browser on occasion to post on gamefaqs and other simple sights. If the 3DS offers faster loading with support for more features (not holding my breath for flash), I would be all in.

    The DSi's web browser really isn't that great, but it was still decent. I doubt we'll see Flash 10 running on a 3DS. That would be a miracle.

    I don't have a laptop, and I have just a simple cellphone for calling, so yes, when I'm out and about, I would use it for the web wherever I go that has wifi, like my university.

    I can see Flash working on it, the browser has the capability to, and it would be a disappointment to not let the 3DS utilize such a useful feature.

    Oh, we want it to, don't you worry. If it isn't in the Web browser to start with, then maybe they can add it later via update...

    It's not only the question of using existing feature. For instance, Adobe might want some royalties for playing Flash, and Nintendo is known for cutting costs (e.g. MP3 was not supported by DSi). Also, 3DS' hardware might not be powerful enough to support Flash 10 playback with decent framerates. Also, there is the classic problem with Flash games relying on the "mouse over" event, which works on desktop computers (mouse cursor is displayed all the time), while not making any sense on touchscreen-based devices...

    True, but they COULD use Flash 7? As far as I've read, they CAN utilize flash 7 (bare minimum) to play Youtube videos and the like... If the wii can, the 3DS can.

    I'll be using the browser as long as it can actually load websites like Facebook (non-mobile) without crashing.
