    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.

    I don't care. If it works, that's enough.

    File downloads are good enough for me. As long as they are relatively fast.

    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.)

    Nah, just "Bowser". But Bowser Browser doesn't sound that bad either.

    I'm thinking Koopa Cruiser, Bowser's airship from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (a game I dearly love) http://mario.wikia.com/wiki/Koopa_Cruiser
