3DS Browser Jumps Ship from Opera to Access NetFront

Will it make for a better browser?
The 3DS won't get its web browser until May at the earliest, as you'll have read in our Nintendo 3DS FAQ, but we do at least know what'll power the machine's web experience.
Unlike previous Nintendo browsers, it won't be an Opera-based browser on the go, with Japanese newspaper Nikkei reporting the browser will be powered by Access's NetFront technology.
PlayStation gamers will be familiar with NetFront as it powers the PlayStation 3 and PSP browsers, but the latest version of the browser supports HTML5 and Flash with a plug-in – could we see these two head to the 3DS's web browser?
