Get with the times Nintendo...
My 3 year old phone has a better web browser than this.

they would not really need to use those formats to view site like youtube or whatever. The custom browser would more than likely use portals designed to support the browser. Which would be more reliant on the portal site doing the proper format conversion the ds/3ds can view.

Smart move as it takes the processing of such content away from the hardware in your hand and places it on the server side. This could be similar to how there are psp supported portal sites that let you view youtube content because the psp does not support youtube directly.

If anything, the notion of netflix support (rumored) comes at the use of silverlight which is what netflix uses currently for PC/360 streaming.

I agree! At least HTML5 for crying out loud! You can't be paranoid forever Nintendo! Even NGP will run at least HTML5 I am sure. :) I might sell my 3DS to pay for it. This is nuts!

support silverlight in place of html 5. flash is for old school content. I would expect it to not support flash.

Criticize lack of flash support all you want but it is flash that is holding back progress of internet video file formats for improved streaming at less bandwidth.
