Opera for Nintendo

Nintendo DS BrowserOpera for Nintendo

I’m increasingly using my Nintendo DS to access the Internet.

The Nintendo DS Browser is made by Opera, and it’s remarkably capable.

An interesting feature is the overview mode, where the dual screen of the Nintendo is put to good use, by displaying a full screen version of the website on the top screen, and a scrollable view on the bottom screen.

So far I’m happy to report that it works great with most standard web-sites I’ve accessed, the browser has some clever rendering tricks up it’s sleeves, so most web-sites make good use of the small screen.

I’ll be writing a full review of the Nintendo DS browser, but so far I’m very happy with it, and I’m using my FON router to access the Internet when I’m at home.
