I wonder if it's Opera.
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) http://wiiudaily.com/2012/0...
It is "NetFront." Whoever that is.
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
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.
Basically WiiU'S score is 3 times the score PS3 and Xbox got.
Correction 3x better than Xbox 10x better than PS3
Can u browse the internet with the tablet?
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)
@ronin4life Didn't know that but its definitely a cool feature.
The Wii u would need to get a Tablet first.
Yeah guys, you could always try 'Smart Glass' because Wii U doesn't come with a tablet controller... *facepalm*
Its a gamppad with a touchscreen, not a tabet. It has been stated many times and Nintendo has stated it themselves. http://www.destructoid.com/... http://mynintendonews.com/2... 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.
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.
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.
@ 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
My A$$ comes better equipped with HTML5 than IE so really this should come to no shock to anyone:)
Being better than IE is not brag worthy. Dog poop is better at handling HTML5 than IE.
If dog poop is better, then where do you catalog the PS3's and the Wii's browsers? FYI I'm not defending IE, it's god awful.
I use the Wii browser frequently, so I'm really excited about this piece of information.
Ditto. Isn't the Wii supposed to be getting a You Tube upgrade?
Wii alredy have you tube integrate in the opera browser.
Wii's browser was always better than Ps3.
Not IMO I used flash heavy on my ps3 browser when I first got it did not have my laptop no cable TV ps3 saved my life of boredom I could usually watch TV shows and movies via ps3 browser Ps3 browser is not perfect by any means but it served me well
I'm still waiting to hear how it was better. Sure, flash was ok for a few years, but they don't do updates unless you do it manually.
Got to be really honest here and say the ps3 browser is absolutely fantastic and it's free unlike xbox360 which you need xblive which put me off xbox360 and i moved to ps3 no way iam paying to play online that's extortion.
I only used internet explorer for 1 reason. To download google chrome.
basically, this proves that wii u is in fact significantly more powerful then 360
It's capable of running html 5 better. The reason 360 is not that great at that with it's IE is because it's 2004 low end pc hardware and wii u is 2009-2011 low end pc hardware. It isn't rocket science.
Hmm. Maybe, but the Galaxy Nexus scored 297 with ICS, and I don't think that's more powerful than the Xbox 360...or is that an unfair comparison?
Thats some good news.. Im glad that wii u doesnt seem to be plagued with limits that current gen has.. I will have one when i see some great games to compliment its features.. PS4 is my main priority tho cuz i know ill get all the multiplats & lots of exclusives on there... Wii U will be for 1st party.. I cant wait to have both machines side by side beginning a new era of gaming...
