    Nintendo 3DS Browser == IE6? or? 😂

    Lol, 3DS is one of my specialties. It uses a 2011 Webkit with a few select bugfixes (exploitable ones) cherrypicked.

    The NEW Nintendo 3DS' browser is actually decent, but the old one was utter shit.

    @filthyranter It must be the same since exploits are the same. Maybe an upgraded version, but the same core

    @Luigi003 It's not the same at all, if you can believe the guy behind Homebrew.

    @Luigi003 Exploits AREN'T the same. Each browser has a different one. New 3DS exploit is a Stagefright one, O3DS is an old Webkit bug.

    @filthyranter @fox8091 my bad, I usually assume things without proper knowledge and I shouldn't

    Thanks for correcting me! :P

    AFAIK uses Opera as their defacto browser for all their devices.

    Probably didn't want to cough up the $$$$ to license Firefox or Chrome.

    Dumb move on Nintendo's part.

    @binhex It used Opera on the DSi. And it uses Webkit now. The same thing that powers Chrome and Firefox. They didn't use either of those because it's not a high power device. It only has 512MB of RAM. Enough for a dedicated console, not enough for a desktop browser.
