Prebuilt 3DSX & SMDH downloads: https://github.com/thejsa/KoopaCruiser/releases

UPDATE 20/12/2015: Downloading of binary files now works! ^.^
They get saved in the Koopa Cruiser directory. Files with the same name are overwritten (for now) so don't go downloading files named KoopaCruiser.3dsx unless you want to replace the app itself.

Hey, GBAtemp!
I'm trying to make a really simple web browser for *hax 2.5 to make the downloading of files off of the interwebz easier.

Just to be clear, don't go expecting Google Chrome or anything. This won't even have JavaScript or image viewing or anything for a long time yet, if ever. But it will allow you to view web pages and download files to your SD.

Hey, GBAtemp!
I'm trying to make a really simple web browser for *hax 2.5 to make the downloading of files off of the interwebz easier so you don't have to do anything involving (micro)SD cards, Rainbow Dash-themed FTP clients or slow SMB file transfer (microSD Management for New 3DS) to download that TXT file you had your heart set on downloading. :P

What this WILL be:
Able to download files
Able to view basic HTML pages (ie, IsMyComputerOn)

What this WON'T be:
A homebrew eShop or anything like that (though you should be able to download 3DSX files and the like off websites)
A fancy-shmancy web browser like the quite-awesome one that comes with the New 3DS. (Nintendo did quite good there - typing this with it now)

Screenshots and a preview release will come when it's in a usable state.

This will be open source from the first preview release.

So, I need a better name for this - HomebreWWW kinda sucks.
Anyone who can give me one gets a credit in the software and, I don't know, whatever.

Think about it... This is a Nintendo console. Doesn't a Nintendo character have a simular name to Browser? *cough* Bowser *cough*
(Yeah, I know, it's shit.)
