Wii U's browser is better equipped for HTML5 than Internet Explorer 10 for PC

GamesBeat's Jeff Grubb writes: "HTML5 is the language of the Internet. It’s what makes most things possible on the web and the browser in Nintendo’s Wii U console can handle it better than Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 10 for PCs."

I wonder if it's Opera.

ronin4life2232d ago (Edited 2232d ago )

I can't remember what the 3ds uses but I don't think it was done by opera like the dsi...

I think they even said who is working on the wiiu browser yet I don't remember who it was... maybe Google has the answer.

Edit; here is some old info, but no mention of who is making it(unless I missed something)

JeffGrubb2232d ago

It is "NetFront." Whoever that is.

dantesparda2231d ago (Edited 2231d ago )

The PS3's browser is also made by Netfront, and is based on the Webkit framework and can do HTML5. And where are the PS3 scores? Im not saying the PS3 browser is anything to brag about but i am saying dont get to excited by thi news

Axecution2232d ago

I wonder what the PS3 browser scores LOL

No but honestly Internet Explorer is awful

Funny how a browser (IE) can be so bad that it actually inspires disgust, which I totally agree with.

EPIKgamer2231d ago

Basically WiiU'S score is 3 times the score PS3 and Xbox got.

herbs2231d ago

Correction 3x better than Xbox 10x better than PS3

Can u browse the internet with the tablet?

ronin4life2232d ago (Edited 2232d ago )

Without disabling your game.

So if you are having trouble in a hard level, just pause your game and look up YouTube guides on what to do(if you like doing that... I usually don't look up guides and never use video ones)

camel_toad2232d ago


Didn't know that but its definitely a cool feature.

lilbroRx2232d ago

The Wii u would need to get a Tablet first.

Benjamminkno2231d ago

Yeah guys, you could always try 'Smart Glass' because Wii U doesn't come with a tablet controller...


lilbroRx2231d ago (Edited 2231d ago )

Its a gamppad with a touchscreen, not a tabet. It has been stated many times and Nintendo has stated it themselves.

Judging by the disagrees, I can see why gaming is so messed up these days. Some people prefer their own unique version of reality, and as always, people don't like facts that go against what they are used to.

Neonridr2231d ago

okay so if an ipad is a tablet, why is it a tablet? all it is is a giant touch screen, so that makes it a tablet? Well the Wii U has a 6.2 inch touch screen, so by that logic, it is both a controller and a tablet.

JeffGrubb2231d ago

People disagree because you're promoting a silly semantic distinction.

The Wii U GamePad operates nearly almost exactly like a tablet except it needs to be tethered to its console.

dantesparda2231d ago (Edited 2231d ago )

@ Neonridr & JeffGrubb

Well then tell that to Nintendo, cuz they are playing semantics

Read the Nintendo link, they'll tell you. And with you's, i think its a tablet too. But dont knock this guy for Nintendo's bullsh!t
