Opera Software "The DS Browser ends up becoming a bullet point for the Nintendo DS system's capabilities. Yes, the Nintendo DS can now surf the internet. But after the novelty wears off, you probably won't want to", Craig Harris writes in his review. Craig was very kind to send us a DS screenshot rendering the mobile version of OSNews, although the browser seems to interpret "100%" of cell width as 800px wide instead of DS' 256px native resolution. Update: Craig sent us another shot, this time using the "small screen rendering" mode, which looked much better.

it may just be that the DS is trying to handle the full version of the website whereas opera mini is fed through opera's converter to sanitise it for use on small screens, the DS has a lot more work to do, first rendering and then scaling full web pages, and not much memory with which to do it
