    I want to know what it is like to browse the internet on the DS lite and the DSi

    How are the loading times ... features ... functionality ...

    What is the best the internet browsing can be on both systems

    It's slow and pointless and not even worth the time.....

    Ahem....
    DS Lite browser is useless.
    DSi browser is better, but it doesn't run Flash, Java, the DSi also runs out of memory easily if the page is full of graphics or something.

    the DSi browser is way better than the one in the DS lite but it run out of memory with large pages but is fast, it would be better if there was an update to make compatible with flash or with mp4 files at least like the iPhone. I could have a app just for video something as cool as the iPhone has.

    It is very pointless. And I found it very annoying how it took so long to type something up onto a Google search.

    Its pretty crap for both. Sorry for being really subtle about it, but it really is just useless. I can' think of anything good about it.

    both arent the fastest but email and such is pretty fast i guess. dsi is better at loading stuff faster but ds lite is better at loading large pages, which dsi gives up at doing

    but the screen is atad small, anyway to me, its pointless as well, i mean what's the point of surfing the net if it is slower than a 56k, and it doesn't display page well?

    Neither of the DS browsers are very useful...

    It's like wading through a pool of knee-high shit.

    The built-in browser for the DSi does the job. It loads pages quickly enough, but it's not a replacement for an actual laptop or PC. Using it once in a while to check something up in Wikipedia, IMDb or Google is basically what it's for and it does that admirably.

    The DSL one works great for porn if you have no other options...
