Review Nintendo DSi Browser (DSiWare)
Almost three years after the release of the original Opera Browser for the Nintendo DS, does this new iteration meet expectations or are we once again plagued with loading times from a decade long past?
The Nintendo DS Browser was released around three years ago on October 6th 2006 for the Nintendo DS and the then newly released Nintendo DS Lite...
About The Game
Download the free Nintendo DSi Browser from the Nintendo DSi Shop and surf the Internet using your Nintendo DSi! With the Nintendo DSi Browser, you can check your e-mails, stay up to date with all the latest news and explore the web whenever a wireless Internet connection is available.
This version of the popular Opera browser is made specifically for Nintendo DSi systems, and uses both screens of the Nintendo DSi and its Touch Screen technology to offer a comfortable, speedy and straightforward surfing experience. You can navigate web pages with your stylus and enter text whenever the need arises by using the on-screen keyboard or built-in handwriting recognition.
Two alternative ways of viewing the web pages displayed means you can find the browsing method you’re most at home with. The default setting, Overview Mode, shows a zoomed-out overview of the page you’re browsing on the top screen of your Nintendo DSi, with a magnified view shown on the Touch Screen. Dragging and tapping your stylus on the Touch Screen lets you quickly and easily navigate through websites. You can also switch at any time between showing the zoomed-out overview on the top screen or the Touch Screen.
In Column Mode, all the content of the page you are viewing is compressed into a single column that extends across both of the handheld’s screens. This view can make it easier to read long texts - partially altering the original layout of the page to best suit your Nintendo DSi.
On top of the browser’s main functions, little touches add up to make the experience more seamless and intuitive. Drag the stylus over text to highlight it and easily use it as a search term, control everything from the Touch Screen or opt to use the +Control Pad for certain functions, and choose your preferred font size and search engine to suit your preferences. To help you get started, there’s a tutorial that will guide you through all the main features of the browser step-by-step.
Parents can block the use of the browser with the Parental Controls function of the Nintendo DSi. Additionally, the Nintendo DSi Browser also includes access to Astaro, a fee-based content filtering service.
Explore the world from the palm of your hand with the Nintendo DSi Browser.
- Download the Nintendo DSi Browser for free from the Nintendo DSi Shop and surf the web from your Nintendo DSi.
- Choose your preferred way of viewing the web and navigate pages using your stylus on the Touch Screen.
- Get started with a step-by-step tutorial and tweak your preferences to create a browsing experience suited to you.
- Use the Parental Control function of Nintendo DSi to limit access to the browser.
Is it possible to watch Youtube videos with the DSi browser?
No, youtube does not work The browser is pretty slow (graphics take a while to load) but is still worlds better than trying to surf the internet on a cell phone. I am using it right now I also tested a couple of games on WiiCade; the flash games do load, however many of them are unplayable using the DSi controls (ex. keyboard/ Wiimote input is impossible)
Note that there is now a DSiCade.com where DSi-compatible games are going to live.
This works really great! Th only bad thing is the non-flash support. But the feature of going on MSN is cool! m.ebuddy.com
soon we will be able to watch youtube.com... in 2020... we do have hatena.ugomemo.jp that works better than youtube... no deleted videos and copyrights...lol... loophole!!!
what up guys go DSi
this works well and i use it all the time
First thing I'm gonna to put my hands on!
The DSi browser is excellent.
First things to do when connected to internet on the DS - update the browser and download flipnote
nice little detail 11 seconds in, in the youtube clip!
he's using acekard 2i, rofl!!!
This is great but the only problem is there is no flash
Sweet, posting about web browser while using the Nintendos browser, DSIstyle. whats better?
DSi.....a must buy!
i have it, but it is a total waste. it is sooooooooooooooo slow, there is NO flash, and the screen control is really crappy. DO NOT GET IT. you have to sit in an uncomfortable position just to get the wireless connection to work, too. bummer.
Flash is a processor and memory hog and requires a huge code library to run. You may have noticed it's not even on the iPhone? That's because even Steve Jobs believes it will bring down the performance of it's hardware.
Since it has trouble running on hardware that is 10 or 50 times more powerful than the DSi, what makes you all think it would be able to run it?
This web browser sucks!
No, it doesn't. No flash blah blah blah? Then you must complain at Nintendo's hardware, not here.
I'm using the DSi web browser right now, to type this comment:) This browser is awesome!
it works just not all that fast
Used this 2 times, but got bored with the slow loading time >-<
akirih well thank you know I know not to buy that game
mobile sites work best on the dsi browser
if you want to go on facebook write this url: m.facebook.com
@kaykay of course you won't be buying this game. Firstly because it's free and secondly because it isn't a game.
@Fizza I wish I could be you, going into SV blind. Thanks to some scummy Poketuber I saw a leaked mon and after that decided then and there I was going to look at the leaks.
So as punishment I changed my pfp to a dog with an egg on his head to remind myself to not let the egg (my impulse) tip into leak territory again.
I just wanted to say please stay away from the leaks I really want to see your raw take on the new pokemon.
@Kermit1 Firstly, thanks! Secondly, I think you might've posted this in the wrong place XD
@Fizza I wanted to post this where no one is talking about leaks.
Your welcome, I can't wait for the 18th.
